130 The Nature Studio
A complete immersion into throwing in a special environment.
Franco Rampi www.francorampi.it
July 16th – 22rd , 2017

Throwing. For all

La Meridiana has created the new Nature Studio in its gardens. Morning sun and the golden light of sunset illuminate the studio space that is shaded by majestic oak trees. Students work accompanied by the sound of songbirds, the whisper of leaves and the call of frogs.
The very first workshop ever run in the Nature Studio is dedicated to throwing. It consists in five days of intensive throwing training. The work will not be fired, allowing students to approach the exercises with a sense of liberty that helps to loosen up and add fluidity. On the wheel we'll be defining techniques, pulling and pushing the clay. Fundamental trimming techniques and adding handles and spouts will complete the methods taught. Experience the beauty of Tuscany close up, with a rich immersion into clay and nature.

Cost: € 900
The workshop fee includes:
tuition (class is 6/7 hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
materials
lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of € 150
welcome dinner
welcome breakfast
a freshly prepared Tuscan lunch with wine on the working days
