EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Ceramic painting

On the occasion of the inauguration of the new ceramic workshop, we propose a ceramic painting activity where you will learn the dry brush technique.

The potters will demonstrate their creations. They will explain you how the lathe works and how a ceramic piece is created. Afterwards, you can choose a piece ready to paint and decorate using the dry brush technique. This technique allows to combine different colors and layers to create several textures as a relief.

The pieces will measure between 12 and 15 cm and you can take it home with you the same day.

Chocolate and churros

Why not to try chocolate and churros, a typical Spanish dish from the beginning of the nineteenth century and originating in Madrid. Churros are a dough made with flour that is deep fried and coated with sugar. They are traditionally eaten with thick hot chocolate. The chocolate is usually 100% melted cacao for dipping the churros in and enjoying this delicious combination of flavours.

Generally it’s served as a special breakfast, although it can be a snack, so you can have this dish either before or after a visit or activity you were partaking in at Poble Espanyol. We know you gonna love them...! Bon appétit!

Create a design on glass

Barcelona is known for being a modernist city with many buildings decorated with stained glass windows. Casa Batlló, the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell are examples of this architectural style.

We propose a workshop to bring out the artist in you, let your imagination fly and create a painted glass piece. You will design a drawing by hand, then you will transfer the design to the piece of glass and with several special paints, you will colour the piece, playing with the different luminosities and textures of this old and decorative material.

After the workshop you can visit the stained glass collection in the Fran Daurel Museum, made with different techniques such as blown glass or fussing.

Design your necklace with fire blown enamel

Hot enamel is a technique used in jewellery to give colour and texture to rings, pendants, bracelets and all kinds of metal accessories made from gold, silver and copper.

It is glass powder that is placed on metal, combining different colours, recreating drawings, creating shapes, etc. When the design is ready, the piece is baked through a cooking process (that varies depending on the metal type, the glazes and the size of the piece,) to melt and stick to the piece that is vitrifying.

You should have an idea about what design to make on a square copper base. You can combine different glazes and even draw. Afterwards, the pieces will be baked for 5 minutes and left it to cool. Finally, you will polish them, and you will pass the thread as a pendant... and then it is ready!

Let’s make a mosaic

The aim of this workshop is to reveal the mosaic technique in a practical way.

This stylistic decorative technic has a heightened presence in modernist architecture. The best examples of it are Park Güell, la Pedrera, Casa Batlló or the Palau de la Música Catalana. The mosaics are usually crafted with ceramic materials, but we can also find some examples made with glass pieces like in the Güell Palace.

And it is with this unique material ¨glass¨, that we suggest you to work and use the traditional mosaic technique, making a ¨coaster¨. Once the activity is over, we invite you to discover the rest of the craft workshops on the premises that you can visit on your leisure
