Pottery course in Florence

Our Florence school offers 2 or more weeks pottery courses (10 hours per week). This course can be taught  in Italian or in English. Courses are very practical and hands-on and are conducted by local maestros concerned with maintaining Italian artistic traditions alive. By the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Courses aim at developing skills in the work with clay using the pottery wheel. From the beginning the practice will be applied to study and practice of the hand movements and the use of instruments. It is essential in this activity the perception of matter moving through knowledge and measurement of gestures and strength. In the initial phase, you will learn to move the clay to its center of gravity so it can remain in balance until the end of the preparation. After familiarization with these elements and having achieved good modeling abilities you will move to a more advanced stage involving copying existing forms in order to address issues related to the quality of the article such as: shape, weight, thickness, phase drying and finishing (textures, handles, etc.) and the adequacy of the firing.

We provide our customers with different accommodation options (private rooms, shared/individual flats, hotels) near the school.
