Ceramic family workshop: paint the tile of carnations
05 June 2022, 11:00 - 13:00
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 will create your own tile, which you can take home with you. As the tiles need to be baked in the oven, the tile must be picked up at Casa Vicens from the next Saturday the workshop.
