Potters Council is going to Italy again!
The itinerary for this trip is designed to provide visual stimulation as a valuable teaching and learning tool for those interested in ceramics. This visual inspiration will be drawn upon when we reach the ceramic studio at La Meridiana, where you’ll enjoy three days in the studio learning from Pietro Maddalena, Paola Paronetto, and Marcia Selsor. You will also have the opportunities to see demonstrations outside of the studio from Monica Lazzerini and Saura Vignoli.
