Fabulous clay session

We booked a clay session with Margarida in Caldas. What a fantastic informative and fun morning. I have zero creative bones in my body but I still loved every second. Margarida was kind, calm, patient and extremely welcoming, she was also so professional passing on so much knowledge and information whilst demonstrating and helping us.
I will definitely be going back. Fantastic experience

Happy I found Margarida to teach my mom!

So happy I enrolled my mom for a session with Margarida! She had the best time and made beautiful pieces during the class. My mom is very excited to pick up her ceramics when they’re done. We are looking forward to future classes with Margarida! We highly recommend her workshops to those who are looking for a fun activity to do in Caldas da Rainha.

Loved every minute!

What a true find! I cannot recommend Margarida's workshop enough. She is super kind, friendly & explained all the basics with ease. The workshop had a great energy & vibe to it, highly recommended. I can't wait to pick up my finished pieces 

A true gem

Every single moment of this workshop was created and taught with such care and thoughtfulness. Margarida even had the most beautiful and tasty pastries and tea for me! She was a wonderful teacher and I left with so much more knowledge about hand building techniques. I also felt like I left with a new friend! Margarida taught me not only about pottery, but about Portugal and the people. She was sweet, kind, and extremely talented. I can’t recommend this workshop enough. I absolutely loved it, and if I’m ever in the area again I will be back!
