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!

Booking

La MeridianaPietro Elia Maddalena studied ceramics at the West Surrey College of Art & Design in England. After two more years of work at Dartington Workshop, he returned to Italy where in 1980 he established a studio in Certaldo, near Florence. Pietro is the founder and director of the International School of Ceramics LA MERIDIANA located in Tuscany, Italy. Also instructor and maker he says of himself : “ I am totally and continuously interested in the process of making. I see the craft object as a projection of the human spirit and the culture in which it was nurtured. In elaborating concept, material and process, my ultimate goal is the expression of beauty through sophisticated and sensual forms”.
