Basic ceramics classes / Contaminations

Liberating our dreams through our senses

Monica Zauli

Monica Zauli, daughter of art, architect and artist, will introduce the participants to the “paradise” of ceramics, telling of the little girl who observed her father’s work and what she learned from him both about materials and about tools and techniques. Monica will guide the clay work right up to its firing, giving advice, offering alternatives and, when necessary, reminding us of the rules of art.

The Workshops

The courses take place in the historical workshops inside the Museum where the evocative atmosphere of the place and the layering of the work on ceramics are clearly perceptible. Here, involvement is inevitable and the spirit of the place pervades the soul.

Technical information

Each participant will have a personal station on large common tables and a tool kit including blocks of clay, modelling tools, loop and ribbon tools, scrapers and potters ribs, and everything that will be necessary for the creation of their own objects which, at the end of the course, can be taken home.

The courses are aimed at a groups of a minimum of 8 participants and up to a maximum number of 15.

The organisation of the projects is planned in two work phases: 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon, from 9:30AM to 12:30PM and from 2PM to 5PM.

Any special needs, requests, or course customisations can be agreed upon with the group organisation.

The courses can also be held in foreign languages, English and French; it does not require the presence of an additional translator and there is consequently no additional cost.

At the end of the course, a certificate of participation will be issued, and participants will be able to collect the objects they have created. Shipping costs are excluded from the costs of the course.
