royal copenhagen painting school

denmark is home to so many amazing home brands and royal copenhagen is one of their oldest. founded in 1775, they are most recognized for their iconic blue and white porcelain (though their colorful fluted mugs are very popular as well).

every summer they open up their beautiful upstairs studio to host a painting school, where you can recreate your very own hand-painted royal copenhagen piece. it was SO much fun! i love anything hands-on and it was just liberating to have space to make a mess. (though of course the goal is to make no mess, since it's so fancy...) their pieces are still hand-painted to this day, and takes months before you can be certified as meeting their standards. oh wait, you DON'T want your beautiful perfectly curved lines to have kinks in them...?
