"Flower Containers" Workshop - Spring Cycle
Continuing the Spring Cycle program at MASF, the Museum, together with the plastic artist Flor Fernandes, promoted a ceramics workshop where the basic techniques for making a vase were explored. The first part of the workshop (May 5th) was dedicated to modeling and in the second (May 12th) the pieces were decorated using the engobe painting technique.
