Painting Ceramics workshop ~ This workshop consists of decorating a porcelain dragon figure (designed by Gaudi) which has previously been fired at 1200º C. The decorative mosaic technique often used by Gaudi is also explained in detail.
Glass‐fusing workshop ~ Students will study the many marvellous possibilities of working with molten glass. Each participant will produce a plate or bowl and decorate it according to their own preferences.
Pottery workshop ~ Following a demonstration of the art of ‘throwing’ a pot on a wheel, each participant will be given the opportunity to produce a bowl, plate or jug of their own.
Sculpture workshop ~ This workshop focuses on how to make sculptures appear well balanced and less static than is often the case. Each participant will be then be given the opportunity to make a Picasso‐style Spanish bull.
