What you'll do

---COVID-19---
Safety measures in our studio: Hand sanitizer dispenser at the entrance (see photos). All surfaces, supplies and materials are clean between sessions. Less spots available to keep distancing possible. Window fans to circulate the air.
PLEASE bring your own facial masks. No visors allowed!
---
In the old neighbourhood of Penha de França, one of the most typical neighborhoods of Lisbon, we have an atelier. In this traditional environment we feel at home. We will, after getting acquainted, start off with a very brief introduction of the history and style of the tiles we will be painting.
Then we will show you hands-on how the process is done from start to finish and answer any questions.
Choosing from a range of antique designs that you would actually be able to find in Portugal, you will then paint these designs on your own. We will be assisting throughout the whole experience.
You will paint TWO TILES.

Afterwards, the tiles will be fired in one of our kilns and you will have made a couple of tiles of your own, using the same techniques the old portuguese masters used!
Please keep in mind that the process of firing the tiles is lenghty. The tiles are usually ready for pick up in 24h-48h. If it is not possible for the guests to pick them up we are able to ship them. Shipping depends on the amount of tiles and the destination. For pricing please send us a message

This is definitely an experience worth trying and you get to take a self-made souvenir back home with you. It's very informative and a lot of fun. Pedro & Tetyana are passionate about what they do and you see that throughout the experience.

INCREDIBLE!!! Tetyana and Pedro are the friendliest couple/ hosts you’ll ever meet. They had such a deep understanding of Tile history which we got to learn before we started getting hands on with the tiles. They also had a cute member twirping away in the background called Emy! (maybe Emi, or perhapy Emmy!) an African grey Parrot. Nonetheless, This made the experience even better! Next time i’m in Lisbon I’ll definitely be making more tiles! To top off this experience they also gave us locations to where we could find these different style tiles to see in for ourselves. Thank you so much for the experience! I’ll be back :)

Absolutely amazing experience, Pedro and Tetyana were so lovely and super knowledgable. I’m Portuguese myself and there’s so much I had no idea about and learnt during this experience, the process of creating the designs on the tiles is so therapeutic and fun. (They also have an African Grey parrot trying to talk to us in the background that was hilarious!) True artists! 100% recommend.

We really enjoyed making tiles with Pedro and Tetyana - it was very intimate as there were only two of us so we really got to know them and we loved all the knowledge they shared with us. They are both super passionate and it made our experience one to remember! And we got two tiles each (one in the Dutch way and one we personalised ourselves!) they were super supportive of our ideas. Would highly recommend!!!
