THE CERAMIC LAB IN MONTAIONE
Fancy doing something creative in Tuscany? Take the chance to get a private lesson with a local artist directly at her lab in a beautiful Tuscan village.
The artist and owner is a nice and a very skilled Lady, Anna Maria.
She will be very happy to share with you a half day, around 2 or 3 hours lesson learning how to use colors to create your ceramic decoration!
You can be inspired by the beautiful arts and crafts in her shop in the center of Montaione, a small historical and very panoramic town, and then create your unique piece of art.
Coffee and snack break is included.
A private English speaking interpreter will also be there at you exclusive disposal.

This is a message we received from Valerie, who took her young children to one of our ceramic classes while visiting Tuscany:
The kids had a great time and talked about their arts all day long. My husband and I were blown away at all you guys did. It really wasn’t what we were expecting! It was so much more. You guys went above and beyond.
We will be singing your praises on Trip Advisor and the like as soon as we get home and I get on my computer. These iPads are so frustrating to type on!
Have a great rest of the week and thanks again,
