Learn an ancient painting technique and unleash your creativity in this course on Majolica decoration. Guided by my professional experience, you'll discover your talents in creating a design of simple and delicate brush strokes, even if you are a novice, that carries on the tradition of my region, "Montefeltro". With this as inspiration, you are invited to personalise your work.
You'll be provided with a handcrafted artefact, a tile, to be hand-painted in your own style. With my help, you'll be involved in the decoration process down to the finished fired piece. You can pick up your work after several days, from my artist workshop in Via G. Leopardi 30 ° Cagli (PU).
If you don't have the chance to remain in the area for too long, no problem! The artefact will be sent directly to your home.
