La Meridiana organizes residential Ceramic Courses and Pottery Workshops of one or two weeks since 1981. They are thought for beginners, advanced and professional potters.
The topics treated are various and refer to all 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 15th 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.
The annual clay seminar, organised for Italian potters on specific contemporary ceramic topics and the International Show of Ceramic Sculpture “Concreta” in Certaldo, where we invite masters of modern ceramics, complete our main cultural of activities.
