Few people know that in Venice the art of ceramics has been developed along with the making of glass and mosaics. The history of this art tells a lot about everyday life, customs, and trading in a city of merchants between East and West. This tour will make you discover the ceramics collection of Ca’ D’Oro and experience a pottery workshop with the masters of the local artisan association.

What’s in this Experience

  • Private guided tour at Ca’ d’Oro and its private ceramics collection, Cannaregio District
  • Walking tour between Cannaregio and Castello
  • Pottery workshop in Castello District.

Workshop Details

There are three different options for the POTTERY WORKSHOP:

1) Graffita Veneziana
This is a 2hr or 3hr workshop where participants will make a pottery plate decorated through the Graffita Veneziana technique. This makes it possible to experiment the same technique used for some of the artefacts seen during the previous visit of Ca’ d’Oro gallery. The final result will be an original memory of the journey.

2) Printing on clay
This is a 2hr or 3hr workshop where participants will print an image of their choice on a tile of clay. It can be a picture taken during the stay in Venice, so the final result will be an original memory of the journey.

3) Pottery wheel
This is a 2hr or 3hr workshop where participants will experience how to create a bowl or a pitcher using a pottery wheel. In this case it will not be possible to take the final products at home.

All the materials, tools and aprons are included in the price. Shipping costs are not included.

When: any time, all tours and workshops are on request, depending to the availability of our guides and of Daniela, the pottery artisan.
