Ceramic courses – Ceramist for the first time
Courses can be personalized and programmed following requests of the visitor choosing between the various manipulative and creative activities.
“Basic Level Courses”for those who, for the first time, get in contact with specific materials and tools.
“Advanced Courses”for those who already have experience with ceramists and wish deepen the techniques of creation.
During the course the participants will be introduced to the entire production process of the Deruta ceramics: all the processing phases, from the manipulation to the lathe to the obtaining of the finished object passing through the various cooking required.
Our proposal focuses on the following phases of greater artistic value:
Manipulation of clay – Shaping at the lathe
At our educational workshop, with the support of our Ceramists and Masters and Support staff, you can model the clay with your own hands and realize traditional objects: jars, bowls, little bowls ...It will also be possible to deepen the technical aspects of artistic modeling by testing the finish of the modeled object and the application of handles and feet on the artefacts thanks to the fresh clay.
You will be able to experiment with the basic techniques of artistic decoration, realizing the
own object ... unique and unrepeatable, reproducing the typical Deruta decorations or
maybe creating a specific theme object using brushes, colors and imagination!
