Government Supports Pottery Classes

This week the Regional Secretary for Agriculture and Rural Development, Humberto Vasconcelos presented ‘Certificates of Participation’ to the ten trainees who attended the 1st Clay and Pottery Workshop, a new initiative promoted by the Madeira Wine, Embroidery and Handicraft Institute (IVBAM), created by Nuno Batalha, a renowned craftsman and potter.

The workshop was divided into two classes, with the morning classes being dedicated to four unemployed participants, who were selected by the IVBAM and the Madeira Employment Institute, while the afternoon class was held for six participants who had expressed an interest in pottery.

This initiative is 85% co-financed by community funds and is supported and promoted through the Interreg MAC project, ‘Empowering for Innovation, Arts & Craft’s,’ which aims to promote workshops that have a strong traditional arts and crafts basis.
