Since 2003 the programme of the Ex-tempore Piran - International Painting and Ceramics festival has been enriched by the Genius Loci Lera Workshop, which is organised annually at the picturesque Sečovlje Salt Pans by Obalne galerije - Coastal Galleries and Soline Pridelava soli Ltd. The workshop gathers artists of different fields to work for approximately 10 days together. Each year the workshop is followed by an exhibition of the previous year's participants' work, accompanied by a trilingual catalogue.

In the beginning many prominent guests came not just from Slovenia (Emerik Bernard, and Milena Usenik) but also from France (Petar Omčikus and Kosa Bokšan), Mexico, Germany, and Spain. In recent years this multimedia workshop has become limited to Slovene artists only. In 2004 sculptors Jakov Brdar, Mirsad Begić, and painter Tone Lapajne, who worked with saltflat mud and salt, were documented by photographer Boris Gaberščik and documentary film maker Matjaž Žbontar.

In 2006 participants were sculptor Mirko Bratuša, film maker Jasna Hribernik, photographer Branko Lenart and three painters: Tone Lapajne, Vladimir Makuc, and Cveto Marsič. The crew of the 5th workshop in 2008 included participants: Huiqin Wang, a painter from China, who has lived and worked in Slovenia for many years; video artist Saša Sagadin; poet Tone Pavček; photographer Matjaž Prešeren; designer Miljenko Licul; painter Tone Lapajne; and journalist Sašo Dravinec.
