Description:

Clay has long been one of the materials that is most widely used by humankind since abandoning nomadic lifestyles to adopt settled ones and with them livestock farming and agriculture.

That was when they had the need to store cereals in granaries dug into the earth. They also started to use pottery vessels (fired clay) for eating and drinking or for storing food, liquids and so on, and they also created ornamental pieces. In this way pots, pans, cups, cheese dishes, amphorae and other items started to appear, as well as an endless list of decorative figures of all types.

In the Talayotic world simple, but very practical and hard-wearing pieces appeared. In this workshop we will work on reproductions that can be reinterpreted.
