Tile is an extraordinary heritage from Portuguese art and culture. You can find it on the front of buildings, inside houses and in the heart of what it means to be Portuguese. In this workshop that will take maximum 2 hours you will learn how to paint a traditional portuguese tile. You will learn how to transfer a drawing to a 15 cm x 15 cm tile, to learn how the colors work and how to apply them. The tiles will be ready (after firing in the Kiln) in 48 hours. You can pick it up, or we can send it to your address by transport (fees apply). You'll have a unique memory which you'll keep forever : the light and colors of Lisbon painted in a tile.

Hello, i'm Ana Dominguez. I was a nursery school teacher for 28 years. That experience gave me a huge passion for teaching, in a "one to one" relationship. But then my love for tile painting, sent me to another professional path, where my teaching experience made even more sense. I'm passionate by the different tile art techniques (traditional or contemporary), and how i can combine them all. Most of all, i enjoy sharing all these discoveries, and teach the magic of coloring tiles, letting your imagination fly. And all of this, on a very small canvas, that can tells us so much about our Portuguese culture and history: the tile.
