Maltese Ceramists in Sicily

25 Aug Maltese Ceramists in Sicily

As part of the Interreg IIIA MedPot project, a project co-financed by EU structural funds, a 46-strong group of Maltese hoteliers, travel agents, ceramists and students from MCAST travelled to Sciacca in Sicily to participate in interactive and positive workshops.

The MedPot workshops aimed to discuss possibilities of co-operation between Malta and Sciacca so that a common promotional tourist package, which would combine tourism with a ceramics token could be designed. The idea seeks to associate the Mediterranean better with the art of ceramics. The workshop for ceramists was also lively and intensive with both the Maltese and Italian ceramists contributing ideas on the style and features of a new promotional product line that would be associated with Malta and Sciacca. At the end of the workshop, over 30 Sicilian and Maltese ceramists signed a common statement agreeing on the product line.

The student workshop was dominated by the Maltese contingent, who designed potential ceramic pieces for the new product line which the MedPot project is seeking to establish. The Maltese students, ably led by their teacher George Muscat, earned enthusiastic plaudits from the Italians, in view of their application and creativity.
