About the Event

Join us for Talevera Tiles-making workshops, a tradition steeped in artistry and community. Talevera Tiles traces its roots back to a small village where artisans discovered a unique method of crafting vibrant and intricate tiles. Talavera pottery originated in Spain. From the 11th century through 1492, Muslims from northern Africa, commonly referred to at the time as Moors, spread the techniques and designs of Islamic lusterware pottery as they inhabited various regions of the Iberian peninsula. Over generations, this tradition evolved into a cherished communal practice, where each tile became a canvas for stories, culture, and shared experiences. Today, we revive this timeless tradition in our community. This workshop is not just about painting tiles; it's about weaving the threads of our stories into a mosaic of shared history. So, let your creativity flow, embrace the spirit of Talevera Tiles, and let's together create masterpieces that will tell our stories.
