Hi! We are GAZETE AZULEJOS, a tile painting and research atelier. We teach the art of Portuguese tiles and we are very active when it comes to preserving the city's heritage.

We work on the promotion and preservation of the azulejos of Porto. We participate in the restoration of the buildings painting replicas for the facades.

Together, we are building a unique public catalogue of the tiles that cover the facades of Porto: OS AZULEJOS DO PORTO. We walk around the city taking pictures of tiles to complete our catalogue. We are also researching about its history, making techniques and designs.
Everybody should know this incredible heritage and we are here to make it happen :)

This was SO fun! Even the most non-creative people in our group loved it and really enjoyed the workshop. Both ladies were sweet, knowledgeable, and great to learn from. The workshop proceeds go directly to fund their non-profit organization and the cute dog was a bonus! 10/10- book this class!!

I would recommend this activity to anybody visiting Porto. In their beautiful quaint studio, the hosts provide such an excellent workshop that is fun and really makes you appreciate the tiles you see all over the city. You also leave with a souvenir that truly is one of a kind. It may require you to adapt your plans around when you can pick up the finished tile (it goes into the furnace over night, ready for collection the following day) but the studio is close to the city centre, so should not be a problem.

This was such a wonderful experience. The hosts of this workshop have such a passion for what they do and not only was it laid back, easy and enjoyable but I learned so much and left with a whole new appreciation for the tiles in Porto (and Portugal). A quality/unique experience I highly recommend. You won't be disappointed!

Highly recommend this experience! I went with my hunnie and my mom. We had a wonderful time learning about the history of tiles, types of tiles, and then paining our own tiles. We three painted 6 of the same tile pattern so we could have a set of matching tiles — it was neat to see how each one turned out differently. This was a great experience, we loved it!

Alba and Marissa were extremely warm and made everyone feel comfortable right away. their knowledge on the history of tiles was amazing and very informative. We didn't want the experience to end! I wish them every success in the awareness they are creating in the community for this wonderful art. Would definately book again if we visit Porto again!

I learned more about Portuguese tiles and how important they are for History. Painting the tiles was a great experience and a perfect way of taking home a unique souvenir from Porto.
