Picture-postcard perfect setting for workshop

Spain’s vibrant culture and breathtakingly-beautiful countryside have been feeding the imagination of artists for centuries. From the historic scenes and portraits of Diego Velázquez, through to the vibrant colours used by Joan Miró, and the more surreal elements of works by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, Spain has made a very important contribution to the history of art.

Now you have the chance to follow in their footsteps at a Ceramic Postal workshop in the Centre of Contemporary Art in magical Mijas. CAC Mijas is home to the second largest collection in the world of Picasso’s ceramics, which we will be using as our inspiration in the workshop being launched on Wednesday, April 26.

The artist, who was born in nearby Málaga, designed hundreds of different ceramics such as plates, bowls, pitchers and vases – if you look closely, you will see the handles are often shaped to show facial features or animals.

In our workshops, we will be using the same traditional techniques as Picasso when we decorate our ceramic postcard by reproducing some of the artist’s designs. During the Ceramic Postal workshops, we will teach you traditional ceramic techniques to decorate your own unique postcard. You can get in touch with your inner artist to produce a beautiful and original souvenir.
