    Great creative activity in a city that inspires beauty

    If you have one creative bone in your body, you must do this! The tiles turn out so beautiful and the teacher has so many options and patterns to choose from so you're sure to find something you like. And it's fun to take a little piece of Lisbon back with (or give as gifts!), mind you - the tiles are little heavy for those of us trying to pack light but worth it. The instructor provided coffee, water and little treats as well. It was nice to sit still for awhile and just use my hands to create. Very fun!

    A little far, but very fun

    This event is a little out of the way, but I had a great time! Our teacher really knows her stuff about tile work and we were able to take home unique souvenirs that we made. Her studio is also very close to the tile museum. We went on a Monday when it's closed, but apparently it's worth a walk over when your tile-making class is over.

    Best Souvenirs!

    This was one of my fav experiences simply because what I painted is now my Lisbon souvenir / gifts for family! It was really interesting to learn about the history and tile techniques, and of course the fun part was actually painting the tiles. Not an artist? Yea, me either! I can barely draw a stick figure and my tiles still came out great! The first (and more traditional) tile you'll paint has the outline so that you can concentrate on the painting. The 2nd tile (your choice) has a dotted outline that you can follow. Highly recommended!
