La Meridiana - Tuscany
On Centre 2022. January 2nd to March 26th. Lead potter - Richard Phethean
Now in it's ninth year, this is a comprehensive, twelve-week programme of primarily throwing, with modules and exercises in stoneware and porcelain, followed by work on presonal projects, for reduction firings in gas and wood. Regularly over-subscribed, a selection process aims to provide a hand-picked group of eight with the most thorough and intensive practical and technical three-month course in making, glazing and kiln firing available anywhere in Europe. This is an ideal programme for those wishing to make a serious step up in professionalism, perhaps with an ambition to begin a professional career or even professionals in need of a battery charging sabattical.
La Meridiana International School for Ceramics is a fabulous centre set in the gorgeous Tuscan hills near Certaldo, between Sienna and Florence. Your course, accommodation, a welcome dinner and exquisite lunches prepared by their own chef are all included in the price. Flights to Pisa are frequent and the airport is about an hour and twenty minutes transfer from the site.
DATE: January 2nd to March 26th 2022
