20 hours Workshop

Handbuilding and Ceramic Decoration Workshop

Teacher Dalia Sofronie

Handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop: 20-hours divided into 4 sessions of 5 hours each.


  • In this hand-building and ceramic decoration workshop you will work with different types of clay, engobes and pigments, understanding that the decoration of a ceramic piece sometimes begins even before creating it.
  • Mastering the hand-building and ceramic decoration techniques as well as acknowledge the optimal times and conditions to apply each, are key elements to conceiving our projects.

The handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop is very useful as a first contact with the clay and its vast possibilities. Once completed, you can practice the acquired skills independently, or continue moving towards more complex projects in our ongoing courses.


We are very proud of our students creations. Visit our Instagram and Facebook pages to see what they’re up to!
