Architectural ceramics and woodfiring. For all levels


Have you ever dream about making a fountain or large-scale work for your home or garden? Using varied techniques from Architectural Ceramics traditions, we will design and build components for a self-standing fountain using Tuscan Terra Cotta Clay. These techniques can be adapted for use in small studios. We will fire the work in a wood-fired kiln at the conclusion of the workshop.

This is a great opportunity to work with two well versed, professional ceramic artists and instructors. Both artists have offered workshops in this field for over a decade. The program includes food and wine tastings and occasional dinners in adjoining towns. The highlight of the culinary day is the sumptuous traditional Tuscan cuisine by Lucia, (who has authored her own cookbook), served every day at midday. We will visit some of the incredible surrounding Tuscan hill towns: The Etruscan City of Volterra and the scenic Medieval towns of San Gimignano, Certaldo and Siena.



Cost: € 2100

The workshop fee includes

the following:

- Tuition (class is 6/7 hours per day with 12 hours studio time)

- Materials and firings

Cost: double room Euro 2100 – single room Euro 2400

- Welcome dinner and welcome breakfast

- A freshly prepared full Tuscan lunch with wine on all working days

- Field trips and gourmet tastings
