Ceramics: Tradition and Innovation


Craft activity has played an important role in the socio-economic and cultural life of Seville over the centuries, with ceramics being one of the most important and representative, especially in the Triana neighbourhood.

Despite the fact that the large historical ceramic factories have disappeared, leaving only small workshops, ceramics continues to be a symbol of the identity of Seville and above all of Triana. Triana’s habitants collaborate daily in giving value to this rich cultural legacy and prevent it from falling into oblivion.

The aim of this course, of a theoretical and practical nature, is to introduce participants to the world of Sevillian ceramics.

The course will be run by experts in the field, with the aim of learning about the subject from the perspective of the different disciplines which, in one way or another, are related to the sector: anthropology, craftsmanship, architecture, construction, urban planning, etc.

The high practical component of this course will allow students to broaden their knowledge in a fun and enjoyable way.

The course is aimed at all those who wish to learn and deepen their knowledge of ceramics: teachers of different artistic disciplines, crafts, constructions, building restoration workers, etc.
