"Painting Tiles" with Elsa Figueiredo
Elsa Figueiredo is a professional artist that will teach you how to paint beautiful tiles, so commonly found in the Portuguese architecture and decoration!
This workshop will take place in her own studio. Experienced and beginner artists are welcome!
The aim of the workshop is to create a tile panel, using the traditional maiolica method, which means painting on top of unfired glazed tiles.
All tools and materials will be provided in the studio. All tiles (technics experiments and the final panel) will be fired and delivered to the students in the last day of the workshop.
The workshop will begin with an introduction about the tiles history and it will be shown a lot of books and patterns where you can inspire and choose what will be your work project.
The theme comprehends choosing one tile panel, after drawing in vegetable paper, define the shapes with a pin and draw with graphite to the tile. After painting the tiles with proper paints, they will be fired at the studio kiln at 1020◦C.
To finish the workshop, on the last day, we will do a little tour in Cascais village to see same examples of tiles panels in the local architecture.
The accommodation is in the centre of the Cascais village. The rooms have a balcony overlooking the ocean.
In the morning we will go to Elsa´s Studio to the workshop "Painting Tiles”.
After lunch we will go for a walk exploring Cascais Bay, watching the fishermen, the boats, the architecture, the historical centre, the palaces and all the surroundings.
You will spend six days soaking in the beauty of Cascais, painting with a group of like-minded people in a fun and relaxed environment.
A mix of tuition, great paintings, a wonderful time by the sea, walks in the surroundings and good food & wine, create an unforgettable experience!
Non-painting partners are very welcome and there is plenty to do. You can always join us in our trips if you have interest in it.
