Our pottery course in Florence runs in an artisan workshop “bottega” in Florence. The artisan organizes this course all year.
Italy has a long history with ceramics and it is important to remember that ceramic is also a form of artistic expression. Some of the most important types of Italian pottery are Deruta and Montelupo, near Florence. Both of these towns are located along rivers where there are natural clay deposits, perfect for the production of maiolica.
The course is one to one. You will be followed by the master craftman in every step of your learning.
This course can be taught either in Italian or in English. Since lessons are individual, the programme can be adapted to your own needs; you can also apply for an interpretation service.

Everything worked well! I had a wonderful time in Florence pottering for one week. Suggestions: better description of the pottery school and the specific pottery done would have been nice. The website was a bit unclear as to how everything gets organised. I had to ask for details such as contact and address of the pottery school rather than being supplied with it.
I would definitely book through studiainitalia again!
Thanks Andrea for your feedback.
As you know, our courses are totally tailor made so it is quite difficult to send programs before because, firstly, you need to meet the artisan personally and then, together, define your own program. We work with different artisans and schools depending on the student´s level, needs and time of the year, not with just one worshop.
Thanks to trust us for booking your next course!
Todo fue una muy grata experiencia. Llegue a casa de Amalia quien me recibió con una cena deliciosa. El departamento muy lindo y ella encantadora. El curso fue lamentablemente muy corto por el feriado pero maravilloso. Giuditta, la profesora de ceramica, una mujer maravillosa, talentosa, magnifica maestra.
