What you'll do
And what do we do? I have always liked sending postcards when I have traveled, the act of sending them and the excitement of when you receive them. From then on, it occurred to me to create the ceramic postcard as a vehicle to tell stories about this craft; disseminate knowledge about ceramics by showing different traditional decorative techniques and telling details about the history of ceramics in Granada or by bringing the work of artists linked to ceramics closer to their creative trajectory. During this workshop, I will bring you to a guided tour to the Contemporary Art Centre of Mijas Pueblo with one of the largest collection of ceramics from Picasso in the world. We will review the ceramic stage of the artist and get inspired by his work to decorate our own postcard learning some of the traditional techniques that can be observed in his ceramics. You could send as a gift in a special packaging we design to a friend, family or to yourself ;) Also, it is possible to pick the postcards up in 24-48 HORAS It would be a good idea if you make your reservation your first days in Mijas, then you could bring your own piece with you
