The history of pottery and ceramic art is embedded in Iran’s rich and valued heritage.
The ceramic painting workshop gives individuals of ages 6 and up the opportunity to experience this art by decorating and painting pieces of pre-made ceramics. In this workshop, participants are given the opportunity to express their creativity and imagination in a unique context and will be provided with guidance and required materials. The painted and decorated ceramics will also make an excellent souvenir for the participants as they complete this workshop.
