Ceramic Painting for Women’s Brain Project in Zurich, 4 November 2018

A fundraising ceramics workshop and brunch

Women’s Brain Project is organizing a fundraising activity on Sunday, 4th November at the fire-works.ch ceramic studio in Dübendorf/ZH. The activity will start with a brunch (CHF 35 pp, CHF 10 per child under 12). After that, we will be painting our own ceramic items using Italian handmade pottery items. We will be guided by the amazing team at fire-works.ch led by Rose.

Tickets for the brunch are purchased in advance via email. Pottery items are to be paid at the venue (a description of the various items available and price list is available on request).

This event is both for adults as well as a lovely opportunity for children. It would be fantastic if you could join us and would also be a chance to meet WBP team members.
