Step into our studio for a transformative hands-on learning experience in wheel-based ceramics with our director Roberto Paparcone.

Roberto personally leads intimate workshops and classes exploring the art and technique of throwing on the wheel. Master techniques like centring, opening clay, pulling walls, trimming and glazing under his expert guidance.

Roberto provides thoughtful, tailored instruction for all levels, whether you’re a beginner looking to discover a new creative passion or a seasoned ceramicist ready to improve your skills through refinements and innovations. Roberto’s relaxed, engaging style makes learning on the wheel both fulfilling and fun.

All experiences take place in in our fully equipped centrally located Palma studio.

This is an exclusive experience where you will learn and improve as quickly as possible whether you’re a beginner or expert.

  • Workshops can be booked at a time that suits your schedule.
  • Each workshop is 4 hours long. (It’s possible to customise this time for longer sessions.)
  • The workshop is 180€ per person or 320€ if you bring a friend and do the workshop together.

  • Payment in full is required to guarantee your workshop place. We encourage submitting a request as soon as possible to reserve your time.

Get a headstart

We highly recommend completing an intensive workshop before signing up to one of our monthly wheel throwing classes.

Taking an intensive wheel-throwing workshop first allows you to build core skills and confidence before the ongoing classes. You’ll get personalised tailored guidance from Roberto through hands-on practice.

The intensive format condenses learning so you can rapidly gain competency on the wheel. Starting with this foundational knowledge means you can hit the ground running once your monthly course begins.
