Portugal is very well known for its ceramics: Its ceramics history, its ceramics production, its former and present ceramic artisans and ceramic artists.
That’s why we made it our calling to look for great ceramic artists in Portugal and offer hands-on ceramic workshops to you.
And guess what?! We found a handful of amazing artists with very different personalities and approaches to their work.
What they all have in common though, is their personal and practical approach during their workshop.
You always meet the artist at her or his private studio and learn not only how to create your own ceramic piece of art, but also how the artist made ceramics their priority in life, why they chose to go this creative path and which kind of dreams and wishes they have for their creative ceramic endeavors.
Altogether, we offer 5 very unique ceramic workshops in Lisbon with talented, kind and interesting female artists on a regular basis. Each ceramic workshop has its own charm and character.
Let’s start with the first one, that is the Brunch and Ceramics Workshop in Lisbon, Portugal.

Let’s head over to Portuguese ceramic artist Leonor and her "Tile Engraving Workshops" that take place at her private home in Estefânia, Lisbon.
During her workshop, the artist gives you insights in a technique that she has been using ever since she started working with botany and shadow influences.
With her "Tile Engraving Workshops", Leonor helps you to create a work of art that stays with you forever. She wants to give you permission to express yourself aesthetically and conceptually, with all the freedom that engraving allows. To make sure you stays energetic and focused, she offers you tea and cookies at her private cosy home.
The final piece of art of this workshop is a panel of 2 fired tiles, created by yourself, and attached to an acrylic structure that allows them to be arranged in an easy and elegant way at your homes. Leonor needs a few days to return in person or ship by post the fully baked and finished pieces to you.
This Tile Engraving Workshop takes 2.5 hours and accommodates between 1-5 people. The price per person is € 104 and includes one panel of two fired tiles made by you, attached to an acrylic structure so you can display it however you prefer in your home.

And now let’s go and meet sunshine and ceramic artist Anna. Anna is a Lisbon-based Russian ceramics artist who you can meet during her 3-hour "Ceramic Shapes Art Workshops" that take place at her studio in Graça, Lisbon.
She invites 1-5 people to create their own unique custom vases. Anna offers you to either work with air-dry clay or with mid-fire clay and glaze the vase, depending on your personal preference. She helps you to dive in your own world of feelings and helps them to translate and express them via clay creation.
The price per person is € 63 and includes one unique custom vase.

During Lizzie’s "Ceramica Erotica Workshops", you can create ceramics inspired by sensuality, fantasy and erotica. The British-born and Portugal-based ceramic artist sees clay itself as an incredibly sensual material and the perfect medium for exploring eroticism in art.
After a first round of brainstorming and inspiration you can then sketch your ideas over a glass of Portuguese wine or water whilst flicking through vintage playboy magazines. You slowly create your own vision using coil and slab techniques and decorate your piece with "sgraffito-technique" after. You can choose between earthenware clay or air dry clay for your piece of art.
Lizzie’s "Ceramica Erotica Workshops" take around 2 hours and accommodate between 4-6 people. Price per person is € 58 and includes one ceramic piece of art, some delicious Portuguese wine and water. Book your workshop at least 7 days in advance and choose your favorite day of the week. For more information and bookings, click here.
