About the Workshop
Engobe was the first ceramic decoration technique. Over the centuries, engobes became more and more advanced and colorful. Did you know that you can make really amazing pieces with them?
In this workshop we will learn how to make our own engobes and experience a wide range of possibilities with this simple but surprising technique. Taught by Katie Lagast, a Belgian artist who has lived in Lisbon since 2015, the 9-hour workshop will take place on March 14th (from 6 pm to 9 pm) and March 15th (from 10 am to 6 pm).
