In the VIA Majolica programme, we will familiarise you with the manufacturing of traditional Modra ceramics, including the entire process and history, as we lead you through the manufacturing process from clay to the final product. We will show you how to work on the potter’s wheel, which you will be able to try out immediately afterwards. And, of course, you will get a sneak peak into the “mysteries” of the paint-room with a demonstration of glazing and painting.
