Kiln Building Workshop - december 1st to 3rd

Serra da Lousã

Would you like to venture into ceramics, but don't know how or where to bake your pieces? In the Construction of Ceramic Ovens Workshop, Renato Costa e Silva and Kerstin Thomas explain how to build small rudimentary ovens that bake, with gas or wood, your pieces with great care. The course takes place in the Schist Village of Cerdeira, from the 1st to the 3rd of December.

On the first day, you will make small pieces of ceramics with different pastes that best adapt to cooking in rudimentary ovens. Acquire knowledge about how ovens work so that you can cook safely afterwards. At the end of the third day, you can take the ceramic pieces out of the kiln, evaluate the firing processes and, of course, take them home.

Creation of different ceramic pastes for different purposes;
Construction and operation of a small rudimentary pottery kiln (paper kiln, wood-fired pipe kiln, and small gas kilns);
Preparation of ceramic pieces for firing;
Decoration with engobes and glazing.

Equipa Cerdeira Home for Creativity
Equipa Cerdeira Home for Creativity
Situated in the beautiful mountains of Serra da Lousã, in central Portugal, Cerdeira is the perfect Schist Village for your next getaway. Here, the unique relationship between nature, art and comfort offers the freedom to live, relax and create in a truly authentic way.

The Cerdeira Home for Creativity project emerged from the love and affection of two families who decided to rebuild the traditional houses of the village, maintaining their authenticity and uniqueness. These two families were joined by several people who are in the village every day to welcome you with a smile.
