Serra da Lousã
Firstly, wood-firing, an ancient technique, serves to study and learn about its wide range of aesthetic opportunities to achieve one's artistic vision.
Secondly, the demonstration of a wide range of construction techniques for sculpture, pottery and contemporary ceramics open new artistic paths for the works to be made by each one. All works will be wood fired in the Sasukenei - smokeless kiln.
Thirdly the focus of the course will be on the individual artistic development of each participant. With the diversity of ceramic techniques sometimes left a little in the background, the focus on the artistic progression of each individual is vital.
