It's a kind of magic - Use your hands, do miracles! - ceramics in use.

General description

Leave all the technologies and go inside a time machine with us. One more thing. You cannot be afraid of getting a little bit dirty. Put your hands in the clay and create, form your ideas and bring them to life!

Leave a relic of the future in the city full of relics of the past. Give a fresh and crazy breath to our students city. Build and decorate a place for you, me and all the others. What will it be? Who knows ;)

And in the evening? PARTY! It's a great chance to spend 2 weeks in the city which never sleeps. Make a summer slalom between monuments, clubs, museums and discos! We guarantee a lot of attractions but will you take up a challenge?
