Wheel Throwing with Heather Spontak


  • Learn how to work on the wheel and terra sigillata decorating techniques with Heather Spontak: a 12-hours workshop divided into 4 sessions of 3 hours each.
  • From time to time we invite an international artist to share his/her experiences and knowledge with all of us. This time we are lucky to have Heather Spontak, a potter from Montana, USA, who will offer her know-how with wheel throwing and terra sigillata decoration. You can find more information about her work on Instagram.

Wheel Throwing with Heather Spontak: ideal workshop for both beginners or experienced ceramicists interested in learning terra sigilatta decoration.

Afterwards, you will be able to use these techniques independently and continue moving towards more complex forms in our once a week wheel throwing course or, as well, rent a working space in our studio.

We are very proud of our students creations. Visit our Instagram and Facebook pages to see what they’re up to!
