Spend a great time on the seaside of Lisbon at the beautiful beach of Costa Caparica with your friends, family or significant other in a small, personalized workshop. We will meet you there, where we will have everything ready to start upon your arrival. We want to offer participants maximum comfort - we will prepare a comfortable set-up in a nice spot with a privileged view of the sea. You will be sitting on soft cushions on top of linen sheets, and the wine will be served in a glass, which is the only right way!
First, we will have an appetizer while we enjoy the view and introduce ourselves. Then, we will teach you the basic techniques of how to work with clay. Working with clay is so relaxing and fun. It doesn't matter whether you have experience or not. This workshop is designed for all levels - beginners are welcome! Your instructor, Julia, is a very experienced artist and will know how to guide you.
During this activity, you will be offered 4 different wines for tasting. All of them have been carefully chosen by Izabela, a wine specialist with many years of experience in wine journalism and the host of one of the most popular wine-themed YouTube channels. Each tasting will be accompanied by an expert explanation of the wine's origin and characteristics among other interesting facts. We will make sure your glass is never empty :)
Enjoy the pleasure of building something with your own hands and the satisfaction of bringing your own creations home! As the cherry on top, you will experience the unique view of the sunset in one of the most unique places in Lisbon. We look forward to meeting you!
Note: Upon request, we offer champagne tasting as well. This option would of course increase the price per person and must be previously solicited.
