CERAMICS COURSE FOR ADULTS
This workshop is a week-end experience that allows you to enter the world of ceramics and get to know its fundamentals. CilentoLab is located in Orria in the heart of the Cilento, Vallo di Diano, and Alburni National Park. This is why, besides the artistic/craft experience, it is possible to come into contact with the local communities and savor their rhythm of life.
Clay is the mother of elements and allows creativity to re-emerge or tickle, an important starting point for connecting with ourselves. Orria, with its wide-open views and tranquillity, facilitates this process.
Participating in this type of experience also helps the local communities to make life in these villages sustainable. Buy local products and support inland Cilento!
