Think how beautiful it would be to sketch your Umbrian holiday in your very own sketchbook. Sketchbook tours are fun, engaging and a creative way of connecting with your surroundings, and Todi certainly has tons of inspiration for that! We'll start with some simple exercises and techniques so that you'll feel confident in drawing. Once we're set, we'll be exploring parks, streets and landscapes. The workshop is offered throughout the year starting from 2 days workshop / 3 nights stay to 6 days workshop / 7 night stays. The Sketchbook workshop can be also be part of customized wine&food programme including our other tours and activities.
Craftsmanship in Umbria has preserved the traditions and the ancient modes of production. The origins go back to medieval times but it is obviously in the Renaissance that these arti minori or, minor arts, reach their greatest heights. These crafts have become well known all over the world like the ceramics of Deruta.
In cooperation with the most important ceramic factories in Deruta we organize ceramic painting workshops starting from 1 day to 5 day tuition.
Our art workshops run all year round (except on Italian National holidays) and are available starting from just 1 participants to 2 participants always inluding an apartment stay in Todi.
Programmes on request for groups
For those who are interested in discovering the ancient methods of Deruta pottery and painting, we organize guided visits to the oldest ceramic factories on request.
