O que você fará

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFO
Covering facades with tiles became very popular in Portugal during 19th and 20th centuries and is now one of the most beautiful and unique heritages of the world.

During this Tile Painting Workshop you will learn to paint with the same techniques that were used by the old factories in Portugal.
It is an opportunity for you to experience with your hands how each Azulejo was produced.

This workshop is perfect for tile lovers.

Every participant will paint 2 tiles. If you want to paint more tiles they have an extra cost. Don't worry, no artistic skills are required :) We will be happy to help you!

Hi! We are Alba & Marisa, the founders of GAZETE AZULEJOS, a tile painting and research atelier. We teach the art of Portuguese tiles and we are very active when it comes to preserving the city's heritage.

We work on the promotion and preservation of the azulejos of Porto. We participate in the restoration of the buildings painting replicas for the facades.

Together, we are building a unique public catalogue of the tiles that cover the facades of Porto: OS AZULEJOS DO PORTO. We walk around the city taking pictures of tiles to complete our catalogue. We are also researching about its history, making techniques and designs.
Everybody should know this incredible heritage and we are here to make it happen :)

IMy wife, 12 year old son, and I did this about an hour ago. It was really so much fun, and much easier than I anticipated. We each did 2 tiles. I can’t wait to see the final result, and take them home and make a small table or serving board using them. The owners were very very kind, and understanding, even after traffic made us a bit late. I cannot recommend this enough. I was very tempted to do another 2 tomorrow, but travels plans won’t let us. Go go go!!!!

It was so much fun & a tiny bit stressful lol (only because Im a perfectionist) painting the tiles. Love what they have put into the program with keeping the tradition & technique alive. Im picking up my tiles today & can’t wait to see the final product! They were also very helpful finding me the most tasty Bacalhau!!

We really enjoyed the tile painting and love the mission behind the organization! It’s different than many of the other experiences and felt unique and special. You get a hand crafted souvenir which is amazing. Be aware: you need to wait a full day to pick up your finished piece!

We had a really great time painting traditional Portuguese tiles! Make sure you listen to the instructions on how to paint them - it’s trickier than you think! We didn’t listen very well, but the ladies were great about correcting our mistakes! Lots of fun designs and colors to choose from. Thank you!

This 1 1/2 hour workshop was fantastic! Marisa was passionate about the history of tiles on Portugal and their efforts to preserve them. It is a disappearing art, yet one that is impossible not to admire while in Porto! These two women are to be commended for their dedication. In addition, we made our own tiles! WHY would anybody buy a made-in-China souveneir when they can take home a memory like this??? When in Porto, this Gazete Azulejos workshop is a MUST. MANY THANKS to Marisa and Alba!❤❤❤
