Ceramics for Beginners Course - November 25th to 29th

Serra da Lousã

The Ceramics for Beginners Course offers an intensive and embracing approach.

Understanding the whole ceramics process, from the preparation of the clay to form giving, from glazing to tool making and firing, that’s what we propose. After five days of intense ceramic work, conversation, and silence in our studio,

Knowing and choosing the right clay for our work and each ceramic technique is fundamental for successful work. We will create our pieces, molding and modeling, building, sculpting, or working on the potter's wheel, get to know the advantages of each technique, and benefit from your newly acquired knowledge.

You’ll have access to a small specialized library for those who wish to be inspired or deepen their knowledge.

At the end of the Ceramics Workshop for Beginners, we learn to fire our works, draw conclusions about the firing processes and, of course, take home some very special artworks;

The course is conceived to enable participants to continue exploring and seeking knowledge in this vast and exciting area of autonomy after the workshop.

Identification of clays and their characteristics and functions;
Forming techniques: molding, shaping, turning, roll, and plate construction;
Work in Potter's Wheel;
Techniques of decoration in ceramics and pottery;

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.
