Pottery classes in Torrelodones. Clay and much more.
Estudio Terracota opened its doors in Torrelodones in 2017. This new space (c / Camino de Valladolid, 34), was born from the concern of three women, entrepreneurs and full of energy and enthusiasm.
The common factor that united Eva, Alejandra and Ana, the three coming from the world of communication (a sector that they bravely left behind), was to build a creative space where the same spirit they share was breathed: slow life, a style of calm life, focused on developing the work that makes them happy and away from the current frenetic pace.
With their hands as their main tool, they consider themselves new artisans. They add to their pieces the contemporaneity of design, an added value that makes a difference and distances them from production in series: their pieces, as you can see in their ceramic classes, and in their furniture and decoration, are all unique ones.
As Eva and Alejandra comment at Estudio Terracota: “the most gratifying thing about this initiative is, in addition to the calm that handwork provides, having managed to create a relaxing space where the students disconnect from their daily reality and rush, and problems are left outside the door ”.
Some are interested in potter’s wheel classes, while others prefer to start with manual ceramic modeling. In these ceramic courses, with hardly any knowledge, the student enjoys from the first moment as he can quickly see results; in addition, the pieces of both Eva and Alejandra, for sale in the physical store and online, serve as a magnificent example. The huge world of glazing and of different types of clay is exciting, and provides many surprises and emotions. Eva points out, “the imperfection in the shapes and the spontaneity of the glazes, gives each of the pieces a great personality.”
But the Estudio Terracota project is more ambitious; They plan to offer a variety of courses in Torrelodones such as flower arrangements, basic monographs on rustic basketry, intensive macrame courses, to become a creative center where learning while enjoying is the objective.

Eva's private workshop
If you want to do a private course in my studio, you can hire a One2One session lasting 3 up to 5 days, to learn various techniques and disciplines of my work.
This private course takes place in my home studio, where you will have access to everything you need to learn everything you want to know about what I do, and that you can put it into practice later, or simply spend a few hours or the most relaxing days making pieces with me.
This private course is called “Introduction to contemporary rustic ceramics”, and you will have the option of learning from modeling and glazing techniques, to basic pieces made on the potter’s wheel. All this in a quiet and natural environment, since my studio is located outside the center of Madrid, so you can enjoy the environment away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, without losing the opportunity to get closer to the center for sightseeing during the free hours.
Should you have any questions regarding the price of the course or any other topic, please do not hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
