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. The perfect location 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 throwing course can be taught either in Italian or in English. Since lessons are individual, the programme can be adapted to your own needs.

    I did a 2 week course in Ceramics. Coming from abroad there was very little information about what to expect about during the course and what I would learn but I was assured that this would be sorted out on my first day.
    Communication prior to arrival with Studioinitalia was good, and the found me great accomodation for the 2 weeks I spent in Florence. Unfortunately the communication between them and the course provider, the ceramics studio, was very little.

    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!!!

      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!

    Everything was a very pleasant experience. I arrived at Amalia’s house who welcomed me with a delicious dinner. The flat was very nice and she was very charming. The course was unfortunately very short because of the holiday but wonderful. Giuditta, the ceramics teacher, a wonderful woman, talented, a magnificent teacher. She gave me private lessons so in three days I learnt a lot. The organisation of Studiaenitalia was fantastic. Federicca took care of every detail!!!!Grazie mile a tutti per fare della mia settimana un succeso marvelloso!!!!!
