What to expect

Enjoy a unique experience discovering Tuscan pottery in Casole d’Elsa, in the province of Siena!

I have devised two types of basic courses for beginners: one on the techniques of producing ceramic objects and one on artistic decoration.

You can choose the course you like best or take part in both, under the guidance of a real expert potter trained at the prestigious School of Ceramics in Montelupo (Florence).

You will be involved in demonstrations, activities and exercises that will bring you closer to ceramics in a dynamic and fun way, trying to stimulate your creative side.

During the first type of course offered, you will get closer to this ancient art, trying to shape the clay into a form. The second course on Tuscan pottery, on the other hand, introduces you to the different ceramic decoration techniques.

Each individual participant will receive a small educational and creative booklet (English) as a souvenir of their experience.
