Ceramic family workshop: paint the tile of carnations
02 February 2020, 10:00 - 12:00
The ceramics from Casa Vicens are one of its most recognisable elements. Can you imagine discovering the process of creating tiles with carnations, the yellow flowers that cover the house’s façades? Led by the master artisan ceramist Manel Diestre, director of the process to restore Casa Vicens’ ceramic pieces, you’ll discover the process of creating artisanal carnation azulejo tiles with the original trepa (transfer-printing) technique. Then, kids and adults, will create your own tile, which you can take home with you*. You will also discover the rooms and the ornamentation of Casa Vicens with a visit at the end.
*As the tiles need to be baked, the tile must be picked up once baked, in Casa Vicens. The date of collection will be informed the day of the workshop.
**Price per child, accompanied by a maximum of one adult.
- Recommended age: between 7 and 12 years old.
- Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
- Only one adult companion without doing the workshop is allowed per kid.
- You must wear clothes that can get dirty.
