Manises offers the visitor the chance to enjoy a variety of experiences linked to ceramics. Our artists and artisans afford us the opportunity to make our first contact with ceramics through a practice, where, apart from learning, we can also have fun and end up valuing even more our craftwork.
Among the different types of experience, we can find:
Arturo Mora – Lustre ware
