⚱ I´m co-founder of Frágil Studio located inside a co-work place called Plata Studio. I´ve worked before in some ceramic studios around Portugal . During the last years I´ve been developing many workshops of "azulejos" and ceramics for all ages, spreading the crafts that are getting lost..⚱ Check out what these bloggers filmed and wrote about the experience in our studio: -www.storyateverycorner.com/azulejos-portugal-how-to-make-your-own/ -www.oioiarts.com/porto-tile-painting-experience/ -https://youtu.be/d-mS2LOpZqk
☞The workshop takes place in our cosy ceramic and arts coowork studio near the market of Bolhão in the central part of the city.
✉ How can I receive my tiles at home? -To receive your tiles you just have to send a message after the workshop with your address and email and I´ll inform you the precise shipping price (usually around 20€ to Europe and 30€ to the rest of the World) per person.
