The Fire and Food Artisan Tour of Umbria
June 17 through 22, 2020
November 4 through 9, 2020
Alla Madonna del Piatto, Assisi, Umbria
Facilitators: Diana Strinati Baur and Letizia Mattiacci
This incredible workshop takes us deep into the medieval artisan heart of Italy where we visit studios and artisans with family histories steeped in the production of pottery, glass, tapestry, and paper. We pit fire ceramics and get an understanding of the ceramic process from many different perspectives. We also come to understand how biodynamic, organic wine is produced and taste artisan beer. A guided meditation at the woodlands of St. Francis rounds out our time together. Our 2019 F&F retreat was a fantastic success, and we can’t wait to have you join us on one of our two 2020 workshops!
