Gien Ceramic-Painting Workshop in Paris
Learn the techniques that go into painting this beautiful dinnerware — a delicate craft mastered over the centuries. Peruse the workshop’s selection of painted faience patterns, and browse a collection of books for inspiration. Once you’ve settled on your design of choice, take your plate and set to work creating your own design under the guidance of your instructor. If the idea of starting from scratch is a little daunting, you can decorate a plate with a pre-filled pattern.
After two hours of working on your craft, stamp your plate with the prestigious ‘Gien, made in France’ seal and keep it as a souvenir. You'll also take home an additional Gien gift.

Terrific. Saw the showroom of Gien patterns, heard about the manufacture of faience and how to handle it after it is painted. Very different from porcelain and pottery. Painting a small plate was the best part. I would do this as many times as I have time in Paris.
