How to make handmade Tuscan Ceramic: a course with a master potter in Montelupo

(3 reviews)


2 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Hi, my name is Matteo and thank you for being here! 

In my family business we make Tuscan pottery since generations, and after achieving the Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor we decided to open our knowledge to everyone that is curious to discover that very ancient tradition and wants to learn its secrets.

In a full immersive two/three hours class we will experience together all the process in ceramic making. 

Our shop in town is like our house, it is open since twenty years and it will be a pleasure to share our passion with you.

The factory is a bit outside the city (in case I will bring you there with my car) and is where we make the magic, and you will see how many hands handle one single ceramic from a piece of clay to a decorated majolica.

Then I won't say more, it's a full-immersive experience that you have to feel with your eyes, your hands and your heart.

What's Included

  • Raw clay, working clothes and ceramic wheel
  • Small-group tour in factory
  • Transport by private vehicle
  • Double firing and glazing
  • Shipment - the pieces you will make will be shipped to your house!
  • If you would like there is the possibility to buy some ceramic (even personalized) that we make, choosing from the models in the factory or the ready pieces in the shop. Being that the shipment is free, you will get them at a very special price!

What to expect


The experience is made to show you what means living like a ceramist, in a countryside town outside Florence.

I will be happy to show you all the process in the factory and and then we will come back to the shop and you will make a piece by your hands!
