Private Deruta Maiolic Painting Class

Meet your personal driver at your hotel lobby and start an amazing daytrip in the Umbria region. Today you will touch with your hands the real Deruta maiolic pottery, that has made Deruta famous around the whole world. Examples of its art can be seen in its churches, the facades of its palaces and in the Pottery Museum. The hills around Deruta divide the valley of the Tiber from the Umbria valley. Thanks to its natural feature,
composed of torrents and steep-sided gullies and the clay deposits, the area has provided the local the raw material used in pottery-making.
Today you will take part to a pottery decoration lesson and experience the stages of decoration until the creation of the finished object, to take home as a memory of a special trip. Your personal teacher will introduce you the production cycle, the choice of the object size and all the cooking process and decoration techniques.
You will have your own desk, and, with the assistance of a decorator expert, you will paint your item that will be glazed, cooked. You can decide whether to pick it up after 2 days or ship it home (shipping fees not included). During the workshop you will be offered a snack with local products.
At the end of the tour your personal driver will lead you back to your location.
Duration: 8 hrs including pick up and drop off
