Ceramic workshop for families
Mugs, small plates, small sculptures or Christmas cribs. You can do all of these with our guidance.
We designed this workshop especially for those who want to offer an original piece to themselves or their family and friends. We challenge the pottery times and do everything this weekend, from creation to firing. In the late Sunday afternoon you will be able to take your own work home, ready to be used or wrapped as a Christmas present.
Christmas workshops for parents and children in the Ateliers of Cerdeira, a welcoming, warm and well-equipped space!
A double gift ... for those who learn something new and for those who receive gifts created in these thematic workshops
