Clay Pottery Workshop Project

We had an extremely interesting and funny Pottery Workshop hosted by Santa Catalina School last 28th March and managed by Pedro "El Alfarero". We usually travel to Úbeda and Baeza to be told about Jaén's pottery, so we decided to experience pottery craft with our hands. Students were told about the whole process and were helped to make their own pieces quite sucessfully!!! They will keep one piece themselves and will give another piece to their English partners. In a future meeting, both pieces will be painted and duly customized ;)

Here you are a video on a traditional sweet eaten in Spain at Halloween time. Traditionally, we celebrate All Saints' Day, also called All Hallows or Hallowmas, familiar, right?. This is only one of the assorted sweets for these days as people also eat baked pumpkin, sweet potatoes with cinnamon and "Huesos de Santo" (literally 'saint's bones') THANK YOU MARTA AND BLANCA FOR STARRING THE VIDEO ;)

Workshops: Flamenco and Soap-making with Olive Oil

With a view to promote our customs and traditions, we designed two workshops for the English students: One devoted to Flamenco in which they learnt basics about it (branches - palos-, rhythm and clapping) Likewise, we made soap with olive oil, a very old tradition inherited from our ancestors.
