Unique Barcelona Craft Activity
We live in Barcelona and we love to share information about our wonderful city. Over the years, we've noticed more people wanting to do ceramics in Barcelona. We offer unique craft day activities. Feel free to select from our special offering of either daytime or evening Barcelona craft activities. We've developed unique craft related experiences that we hope you will enjoy.
Are we located close to the Barcelona City Center?
Taller Gingell is an artisan ceramics studio located in downtown Barcelona. It's located in the Poble-sec neighborhood. We're centrally located next to Montjuic Park, site of the 1992 Olympic Games. It's about a 12 minute walk from the City Center through the Gothic Quarter, 15 minutes to El Born and 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas and Port of Barcelona.
We are two streets from Blai Street, a pedestrian street filled with tapas bars, locally known as pintxos. Blai is a great pedestrian street where you can head out to a bar or restaurant for brunch, a drink or cocktail.
What is a Creative Barcelona Ceramics Event Like?
If you and your group are creative and artsy types, you'll love our space and activities. We offer bespoke ceramic workshops and ideas to give you inspiration for the perfect Barcelona weekend. We can also design the event to serve as a group ice breaker activity, if desired. We'll be sure to get folks talking and getting comfortable as a group, ensuring everyone enjoys themselves.
At our studio you'll roll-up your sleeves and get started on something creative and interactive. Making something together is a fantastic ice breaker and gets everyone talking.
You'll learn a new skill, in a professional artisan studio and you'll keep your creation as a reminder of your special event.
What will you do during the private craft event?
You'll have an amazing Barcelona craft experience. Plus, you'll get your hands dirty.
While our studio practice is ceramics and we like to share a lot about ceramics; perhaps too much at times, we will focus on keeping the activity light-hearted and fun so the activity is enjoyable for everyone. As your event is private, the entire studio space is allocated for your Private Event in Barcelona.
The craft workshop gives you a unique opportunity to learn about artisan ceramics, and work hands-on in an artisan ceramics studio. Workshops typically last between 2 to 3 hours.
(1) Experience Artisan Craft
We start with an introduction to our facilities and the basic ceramic processes.
(2) The Activity
Then out come the aprons. We'll get things setup and explain the clay workshop and timeline. We'll lead you through each step to ensure all group members are successful. We're certain you will be excited to learn more about ceramics, but also see your own creations come to life.
(3) A Memorable Experience
At the end of the workshop your group will have created a memorable ceramic piece. The product is then glazed and kiln fired. The final ceramic creations are ready about two weeks after the workshop and can be picked up at our ceramic studio or shipped via DHL Express to your location.
If you would like to learn more, please contact us today to learn about availability and pricing. We'll get to work putting together a custom proposal for your private event.
