CERAMICS COURSES IN ANDALUCIA

Many cultural centres (Casas de Cultura) in small towns offer ceramic workshops and courses in basket weaving and other handicrafts.

Registration usually begins at the end of the summer, but if you are going to spend an extended holiday in Andalucía, it might be worth it to check in at the cultural centre near your lodgings any time of year, to see if there is an opening.

The courses are inexpensive - as little as 20 or 30 euros per month - and offer an excellent opportunity to practice your Spanish with native speakers, make friends and enter Spanish society through the back door.

If you are unsure about where to find the nearest cultural centre, visit the town hall - "ayuntamiento" - for directions.
