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. Following that it's time to get your hands dirty and, with my guidance and help, make your own pot.
Note that if you want you item to be finalised the whole process of drying, glazing and firing usually takes about 1-2 months. Once it's ready I'll reach out and you can then pick it up or I can ship it at an additional cost.
Other things to note
If it's a single family/group I can accommodate up to 4 people.

The hours are flexible, if you prefer to start at a different 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.

Experiência incrível! Aprendemos com a Carime e tivemos nosso primeiro contato com a Cerâmica. Escolhemos comemorar nosso aniversário de namoro com esta experiência e ficamos muito felizes.

A Carime nos recebeu muito bem. O workshop se iniciou com uma aula teórica introdutória sobre cerâmica, e logo em seguida iniciamos os trabalhos manuais. Ao longo de todo o processo, fomos muito bem orientados e acompanhados!

Carime was very professional and understood her field very well. The experience was both enjoyable and informative. I feel we also got to learn many things in this experience! There was also enough time put aside to finish what we had made. I would be happy to recommend this experience to everyone :)

Things to know

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 8 and up can attend.

What to bring

Remember that we will work with clay, therefor I recommend using clothes that you won't mind too much getting a bit dirty. I will provide aprons but some clay can always escape and end up on your clothes/shoes.
