Since 1981 La Meridiana offers residential Ceramic Courses and Pottery Workshops of one or two weeks for beginners, advanced and professional potters.
The programme for the year 2015 is now on-line, with a variety of topics that refer to the ceramic processes:
hand building, throwing, trimming, decorating, study and application of glazes and the various firing techniques (majolica, raku, high temperature, salt & soda, wood, etc).
The Ceramic School is set in a restored 17th century farmhouse, in the centre of Tuscany, land of Etruscan and Roman culture, medieval architecture and renaissance splendour. Our goal is to offer a facility dedicated to a continual education in the ceramic art, a meeting ground in a place rich in Italian culture.
On Centre is a twelve week residential course based on throwing techniques, study and experimentation of claybodies, glazes and firings.
