October 4 – 10 2020
Unlimited clay for an intensive training on the wheel
Throwing. For beginners and intermediate


This unique workshop  consists of  five days intensive throwing,  with the inclusion of techniques for completing some of the work like trimming, pulling handles, addition of feet, etc. On the wheel we’ll be pulling and pushing, altering forms, cutting and adding clay. Round pots, oval pots, square pots. Handles, spouts, lids, wings and horns! Tons of clay available, training, experimenting and expert guidance are at the base for consistant  progress. Pieces will not be fired, but made exclusively for training purpose. Franco Rampi started working as a potter in 1981. After an apprenticeship in England and a cycle of studies in Italy, he opened his own studio in Tuscany. With his roots and training in wheel thrown production pottery, Franco’s personal works are individual in their form and idea, experimenting with unusual processes and combinations of clays and slips. He has been one of La Meridiana’s most treasured collaborators over the last decade. www.francorampi.it
