Painting ceramics yourself – the creative time-out
For the whole family an experience, as the painting workshop is suitable for all ages. The choice is unpainted ceramic molds such as cups and plates as glazed raw ceramics. The original color palette is large: from colorful to classic to subtle, you can let off steam. There is also a wide range of motifs to choose from, so take a template or just paint away. In order for the colors to unfold their full splendor, the pieces must be fired for 16 hours in the kiln. In 5-7 working days, your work of art is then ready for collection or the manufactory also sends on request to your home address.
