A journey illuminated by candles, the smell of clay and beeswax
October 7, 2023 10:00h to 14:00h
What we will do?
In this workshop, we will dive into the fascinating history of chandeliers, exploring their diversity of designs over time. Inspired by the fusion between functionality and aesthetics, we will translate our own interpretations into unique ceramic pieces. As we mold the clay, we will bring to life the convergence between art and utility.
But our creativity doesn't stop there. We will learn from Casa Tenue the ancient art of making beeswax candles, a direct connection with nature and a tradition that transcends the centuries. These candles will be the light that gives life to our chandeliers, combining the beauty of ceramics with the warm luminosity of candles. A journey through time and craftsmanship awaits us, where we will create not only objects, but also a deep link between history, creativity and light.
After the workshop, we must let your chandelier dry, once dry we will bake it, this process can take a week, then you can pick it up in our workshop.
Or if you prefer, we can send it to your home (home delivery is not included in the price of the workshop)
