L’Atelier Geneviève is the new cool spot in Paris 11th arrondissement. Both a café and a ceramic studio, L’Atelier Geneviève offers you to customize all kinds of raw ceramic items and bring them home afterwards! The whole while sipping a nice and warm cup of coffee.

Here’s to DIY fans, L’Atelier Geneviève is a café of a new kind that has just opened in Paris 11th arrondissement, since it’s a ceramicafé. The first of its kind in the capital.

The concept? L’Atelier Geneviève is both a café where you can come and drink an organic tea, an ethnic coffee, a craft beer or an organic wine while nibbling on organic savory or sweet cakes. But L’Atelier Geneviève is also a ceramic studio allowing you to customize ceramic pieces on the spot!

In short, you go there – no appointment needed – pick up a raw ceramic piece like a bowl, a plate, a vase, a teapot or even a soap holder. You discover the various techniques to paint on ceramic, you choose your colors and paintings and it’s your turn to step in!

You custom your item on your own, like a grown-up and once you’re done, L’Atelier Geneviève team enamels your object and cooks it for 24 hours in an oven at more than 1000°C. The next day, you come back and grab your handmade object and show all your friends saying “I did it” or you can give it to someone (for Christmas for instance!).

Please note that L’Atelier Geneviève also offers workshops – upon appointment – for a birthday, a seminar or even a bachelorette party.

The perfect place to relax while making something out of your ten fingers!
