THE SECRETS OF TERRACOTTA

12€

To anyone who is passionate about pottery or just curious, we offer a guided tour inside and outside our furnace, that will last about 30-40 minutes. During the visit, we will explain and show, whenever possible, all stages of production of a handmade pottery. The visit will begin on the outside, we will show you how and where the soil is taken to be processed and how it is cooked before being sold. We will unveil the secrets of an ancient art, the working techniques, from the most common to the most ancient and challenging. After this visit, the firm belief that "some water, some soil, and that's it" will disappear forever, and you will understand that in a single terracotta artifact there is the story of a man.

LOVE POTTERY

150€

I would like to propose a specific course on "love pottery" to those who decide to spend a lovely day together, or would like to do an original gift to the beloved person, to a couple who is getting married or for a wedding anniversary. This art was born in my territory towards the end of the 15th century when, also thanks to the influence of the Renaissance love poems, the lovers and the betrothed used to give their loved ones their portrait drawn on a majolica platter. This is where my workshop starts from. First you will draw the profile of the person you love on a sheet of paper, then you will reproduce it on a ceramic platter, using the ancient technique of dusting. You can customize your artifact adding the features of the person that you are painting, and then a love sentence, a name or a dedication. I will tell you the secrets of this wonderful technique and we will study together all the details of the beautiful colors of majolica. After the cooking, your artifact will be sent home (free of charge for residents in Italy).

REPRODUCTION OF A FRESCO

150€

What I want to offer is not just a decorative experience, but also a historical and cultural one. With the help and the experience of my friend Agata, you will visit two important historic churches in Cagli. Thanks to her knowledge you will see some medieval fresco. St. Joseph Church with the XIV century fresco representing the “Madonna del Latte”. St. Francis with the fresco of Mello from Gubbio. After a brief but intense visit to the churches, we will reproduce, on a majolica refractory tile, a detail of the fresco saw previously. We will analyze the detail to be drawn through the pouncing technique. We will use the “half dye” for the shades of the ruddiness. You will get to know the main characteristic of the brushes and of the majolica's colors. Until the cooking of the object. The workshop is thought for all those people interested in knowing and experiencing the majolica's art through the culture of the artworks that characterize my precious territory.
