Throwing. For all


This  hands-on 10 day workshop on mastering the art of throwing dinnerware and associated tableware will be tailored to each individual and their abilities.  If you are just starting out with pottery, don’t be intimidated… We will work at your level so that you can gain the necessary skills to create vessels that are both functional and beautiful.
For those who are more experienced, this course will provide the skills and know how to undertake professionally crafted production dinnerware and associated functional vessels, as well as exploring the creative process for unique functional work.
Making production dinnerware, whether for clients or just for yourself, can be a very rewarding process. It can provide you with a unique way to showcase our signature glazes and forms, as well as expand your creative work into a more lucrative form of production pottery. It can be difficult to gain the appropriate skills required to be successful wit dinnerware, even though hand-crafted dinnerware is often requested by potential clients. This course will give you the confidence to embark on this exciting area of pottery!
Working together as a group, we will explore new forms and ideas for unique dinnerware, bowls, drinking vessels and any other forms of interest. We will use stoneware.  There will be time to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany and taste some of the great products it grows.

Cost € 1.400  It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials, firings and a side trip
