What you'll do

Welcome to Nü Creative Co-working. I'm so happy to receive you in our studio to learn how to do your own pieces of ceramics.
Once you arrive in Porto you will immediately notice the beautiful traditional Portuguese tiles and ceramics, it's impossible to avoid being inspired.
At Nü, you can create your own souvenir from Porto, learning ceramics and enjoying a very creative and relaxing morning or afternoon.
You will make one piece in clay, modeled and painted by hand, which you can take home four days after (as it needs to be baked) or ship home.
You can choose the type of clay, technique, object, shapes, colors and I will guide you through every step. If you want it to be glazed after baking, we can do it for a small fee.
The workshop lasts around two hours and I promise you will want to return for more clay!
Other things to note
Please note that your pieces need to dry before going to the oven, so you can take them four days after your workshop or we can send them home (adding shipping costs).

I work for more than 15 years as a graphic designer, illustrator and ceramist and I lived in several countries, such as Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Angola, Italy and Senegal. I started to work in ceramics because I was very inspired by the cultures I experienced and I felt a creative urge to explore different media.

This is such a unique experience. My best friend and i loved it ! The space was so artsy and lovely. We got something to drink and even some sweet pastry. Anna was our teacher. She was the loveliest person ever. She taught us a lot about the techniques and also about her personal life. We felt really welcomed. Would recommend it to everyone!

Our time in the Atelier was great: Manuela welcomed us with a personal chat about our lives and she introduced us to her passion and job, ceramics. Manuela has been very friendly and she supported us in creating our own piece. Definitely recommended to explore your creativity :)

It was an amazing experience! I liked especially how she knew and explained a lot about clay and the whole making process. Now I would like to try and learn more about it. It was a noteworthy first insight in this field. Thank you!

The experience with Manuela was great. We’ve met at her creative workspace. Manuela shared her personal story which made the intro very special. I liked a lot seeing other people coming to the studio and enjoying their craft. Manuela explained the basics of working with ceramics and we started to create the piece together. She was very careful and attentive, giving the clear guidance and fixing small imperfections. I enjoyed a lot the creative freedom that Manuela gives, in the end I created the piece even better then I imagined. I truly recommend the experience with Manuela! You will enjoy the time spent and learn something new :)

We really enjoyed this workshop at Manuela’s space. The place is beautiful, Manuela and Clara were nice and helpful and we got a chance to get to know the art of pottery. Safe and friendly environment. I recommend. Danele, Basque Country

The workshop is lovely to do and really an authentic experience if you like to do something unexpected in Porto. Me and my boyfriend did this workshop on an artistic day where we visited the Serralves museum first and after we enjoyed the ceramics workshop. Now we are looking forward to receive our artefacts back home.
