Service Description

For beginners and advanced learners looking to sculpt, eat and wine, and make new friends!!! Here comes a full weekend of fun clay lessons, all materials, full board and private apartment included! We start by meeting on Friday evening in the beautiful village of Russo, in the wildest valley of Ticino: The Onsernone! A nice Ticinese plate will be waiting for you in your private residence, at Casa Gialla. A continental breakfast will served by 9am by the lovely staff at the Posta Restaurant, which is only 5 minutes walk from our accommodation. We meet at Perdomo Artworks, by 10am. We will have the chance to introduce ourselves and start our first lesson. We'll sculpt till lunch. We'll be eating fresh pasta, a nice salad and home made cake at the Posta Restaurant! We restart the lesson by 13:30 till 17:00. We'll have a private break to freshen up before heading back to the restaurant for dinner. After dinner you'll be free to walk around the little town of Russo, or retire to your apartment, or if you're up for it, make friends with the group! Sunday we start with breakfast, then start sculpting by 10am. Lunch is at noon and we sculpt again from 13:30 till 17:00. Once we are happy with our sculptures we get to celebrate our experience with a nice glass of wine!

Your travelling companion can share your apartment and come join us for meals for an additional 120chf, no problem! Come an experience a creative, out of the ordinary fun weekend in the wildest and most beautiful valleys in Ticino!
