Itinerary

Discover the ancient Sicilian art of pottery manufacturing. Enter a studio in the heart of Catania and discover all the secrets behind this fascinating art. From the ground to the object creation, this famous pottery lab is full of artisans which have a lot of knowledge to share with curious travelers.

Start with a historic introduction about pottery craftmanship: learn about the origins of the laboratory, discover the roots of ceramic manufacturing in Sicily and all over the world. Let you be guided by an expert artisan during your journey through the magical pottery universe. Discover all the steps of production before improving your artistic skills on ceramic.
Work on the lathe under the guide of an artisan, and model your piece of ceramic for creating your own masterpiece. You will also discover more educational tips about ceramic. Then, decorate your own handwork learning from an expert designer.
Once the work is completed, your own ceramic objects will be cooked in the special oven (48 hours of cooking) and if you desire, your handcraft will be sent to you. In the end, enjoy a tour of the ceramic shop and bring with you a souvenir for your friends and family.
