What you'll do

You will get the opportunity to create your own ceramic piece (for example a mug, cup or bowl) using hand building techniques. We will start with a bit of theory where I'll explain the different types of clay, building, decoration and firing most commonly used in pottery. Next it's time to get your hands dirty and, with my guidance and help, make your own pot.
Note that if you want your item to be finished the whole process of drying, glazing and firing usually takes about 1-2 months. Once it's ready I'll get in touch for you to pick it up or have it shipped (at additional cost).

Other things to note:
If it's a single family/group I can accommodate up to 4 people.

Starting time of the experience is always at 9:30am or 2pm (the AirBnB site has been presenting a bug sometimes, displaying an hour earlier or later). If you'd prefer a different date or starting time send me a message and we can look at the options!

The studio has an access staircase, so unfortunately it is not accessible for people in wheelchairs.

Hi! My name is Carime Engels and I am the founder of a small handmade ceramics studio. After getting my degree in architecture, travelling the world and working for a software company for a few years, in pottery I found the way back to my biggest passion: design. Courses in Spain and São Paulo paved the way for me to set up my small business making exclusive handmade ceramics.

Foi uma experiência incrível. A Carime é uma pessoa super atenciosa, competente e simpática. Fez uma introdução teórica muito importante sobre cerâmica e depois me guiou durante a experiência me ensinando várias técnicas e ferramentas. É um trabalho artesanal maravilhoso. Fora isso o Ateliê e as pessoas dela são lindas, o que inspira bastante.

Una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido con Airbnb. Todo estuvo genial el soundtrack de la sesión, la historia que Carime cuidadosamente ha curado para introducirnos en el mundo de la arcilla, y las técnicas que nos enseñó. Es la actividad perfecta para fortalecer vínculos con familia y amigos o para conocer nuevas personas. Carime ha estructurado cuidadosamente la clase, la sesión incluye una introducción teórica, seguido por prácticas con las principales técnicas de trabajo en arcilla y finaliza con decorados y pinturas. Todo esto acompañado de la amable y paciente asistencia de Carime, snack tradicionales brasileños, música y rodeados de hermosas e inspiradoras piezas de cerámica. Nos gustó tanto la actividad que todo nuestro grupo quizo regresar a una segunda session.

Carime foi uma anfitriã excelente! A experiência foi super legal, superou minhas expectativas! Foi meu primeiro contato com cerâmica, e já quero mais! hahah Éramos 3 alunos no ateliê (com uma ótima localização e super aconchegante) e me senti super tranquila considerando o momento que estamos vivendo. Carime deixou a gente super a vontade, conversou, tirou dúvidas, enfim, uma ótima professora. Se você quiser ter contato com a cerâmica, já sabe onde procurar! Não poderia ter sido melhor. Obrigada de coração Carime, vamos voltar assim que der :)

Carime was an awesome instructor, very patient, engaging and personable. She's super talented with ceramics and clearly knows her stuff, she doesn't just talk the talk, but walks the walk! I hope to book again to work on my technique.
