Ceramics Studio Experience

From USD $50.00
  • Product code: Ceramics1

Get ready to get your hands dirty during this 3 hour workshop where you will learn about the ceramic-making process and try your hand at creating your own masterpiece. The artisan studios of San Juan de Oriente are famous for producing beautifully colored pottery using natural pigments and creating intricate designs with just a few simple tools and a lot of practice and patience.

You will learn to use the human powered throwing wheel (not as easy as the artisans make it look but so much fun) to turn a lump of clay into a vessel, get a lesson in free-form ceramics, work on polishing and painting the final product.  

You will no doubt want to leave extra room in your suitcase to take home some amazing ceramics from some of the wonderful workshops in town.

We recommend wearing or bringing clothing that you don't mind getting dirty, a large water and a snack.

We will pick you up and return you to your hotel.
