Hi. I know it's a bit late in the day but I thought I'd let you know about my 'Open Days' at the pottery where I will be showing my latest works and fabulous glazes, serve some home made (by me) sweet and savoury scones and offer refuge from the storm with a little warm mulled wine.... and where you may find some handmade Xmas presents!

It's all happening this week end, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November from 15-19hrs in my workshop:
Rua dos Coelhos, 59, Qtª da Marinha, 2750-008, Cascais;
93 415 6882- call if you need directions.

Hope to see you there,


ETCHING WORKSHOPS - Casa do Celeiro, Colares

Etching is a 500 year old medium involving drawing on copper or zinc plates, ‘etching’ them, and printing from them on a press. Acid and non-acid techniques are taught including: drypoint(non-acid), hard ground, aquatinting and sugar lift among others(acid). It is an incredibly varied medium where ‘mistakes’ lead one to new and surprising ideas and results. Printing is one of the highpoints as well as experimenting with more than one technique on a plate.

Mary St.George is an experienced art teacher and artist who runs painting and etching workshops in her studio in Colares.

Time/Day: 10am – 5pm / Sundays or weekday by previous arrangement / Cost: €50 / lunch and materials included except printing plates (20% student discount)
