What you'll do

Tile is an extraordinary heritage from Portuguese art and culture. You can find it on the front of buildings, inside houses and in the heart of what it means to be Portuguese.
In this workshop that will take maximum 2 hours you will learn how to paint a traditional portuguese tile.
You will learn how to transfer a drawing to a 15 cm x 15 cm tile, to learn how the colors work and how to apply them.
The tiles will be ready (after firing in the Kiln) in 4 days.
You can pick it up, or we can send it to your address by transport (fees apply).

You'll have a unique memory which you'll keep forever : the light and colors of Lisbon painted in a tile.
This experience is following the sanitary recommendations from the Portuguese Ministry of Tourism.

Hello, i'm Ana Dominguez. I was a nursery school teacher for 28 years. That experience gave me a huge passion for teaching, in a "one to one" relationship. But then my love for tile painting, sent me to another professional path, where my teaching experience made even more sense. I'm passionate by the different tile art techniques (traditional or contemporary), and how i can combine them all. Most of all, i enjoy sharing all these discoveries, and teach the magic of coloring tiles, letting your imagination fly. And all of this, on a very small canvas, that can tells us so much about our Portuguese culture and history: the tile.

A fantastic experience. Didn’t think too much beforehand but this exceeded my expectation. Ana’s been extremely nice and helpful with the whole experience and taking us through the process. Highly recommend this not just for foreigners but also Portuguese natives learning more about this art form!

It was a peaceful and really nice experience. You get immerse in painting with nice music on the background as well as an amazing workshop that invites you to be creative and have patience on the process of learning. There’s no pressure to have a perfect tile but the attention and assistance that Ana offers makes you feel free to try and experiment. I am wishing to come back and learn more techniques and be creative again in an endless world of ceramics!
