the MIC preserves a unique ceramic heritage, very important for mankind. Every day we are engaged in projects that serve society and its sustainable development, to promote knowledge, critical thinking, participation and community well-being.

Our “Playing with Ceramics” workshop offers a series of workshops to develop creativity and learn ceramic techniques even for those with no experience.
