O que você fará

We'll begin with a 2 hour walking tour, discovering the secrets behind the tiles and exploring hidden treasures in Porto. You'll learn the origin of Portugal's tiles, which date back to the 15th century and be taken on a journey right up to modern day. We'll uncover various techniques of tile making and recognise famous patterns of Porto. Afterwards you'll be a tile expert and feel inspired to decorate your very own! We move onto Agostinha's Atelier, where a refreshment is waiting for you. Dive into a 1.5 hour painting workshop and choose what type of tile you'd like to decorate. Decide between a traditional 15th century Moorish tile with arista technique or a flat tile using stencil technique with a popular motif from the city. A little bit on why we do, what we do: Tiles with great historical value are stolen daily to sell onto tourists or destroyed by investors for holiday apartments. We aim to protect the original facades of Porto by raising awareness. We work with traditional techniques to ensure the artisan of tile making is promoted and kept alive. With the speedy rise of tourism it’s more important than ever to protect the tiles and sustain the city's legacy. The Mindful Step: Encouraging the preservation of tiles and supporting local artisans. We'll be protecting Porto's history but also the face of its future.

Jade

I'm an experienced tour guide who has a passion for the tiles of Portugal. When I first moved to Porto from the UK, I spent my days documenting the tiles through photography and researching in the local library to discover their stories. Each tile has a unique history, some dating right back to 15th Century. Unfortunately, with the rapid expansion of the city, the tiles are disappearing fast. That's how I met Agostinha and her wonderful Atelier. Agostinha has lived in Porto her whole life and shares a passion for ceramics. Together we've combined our expert skills to offer this unique cultural experience. Between us we have BA honours degrees in fine arts and theatre, a masters degree in visual arts teaching, postgraduate degree in painting, expertise's in glass and ceramics, and 5 years experience working in tourism.
