Throwing. For all

Back to the starting line again. After the successful January celebration workshop for the new year we are offering a second chance to participate to this classic workshop. It will consists of a five days throwing section with the inclusion of basic techniques for completing some of the work like trimming, pulling handles, addition of feet, etc. On the wheel we'll be defining techniques, pulling and pushing clay, altering forms, cutting and adding clay. Round pots, oval pots, square pots. Handles, spouts, lids, wings and horns. There will not be any firing. Spring in Tuscany will be an explosion of energy. Be part of it!


Cost: € 960
The workshop fee includes:
tuition (class is 6/7 hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
material and bisq firing
lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of € 150
