HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Are you ready for a journey among beauty? I'm going to take you in the fascinating world of stucco, a history as ancient as man. Imprints in mud can be considered as primordial molds.
It all begins from the gypsum's dust that capable hands transform into artworks. With this you will prepare the mixture to be poured into molds that are made in the atelier. All the creative-productive process, in fact, is the result of research, experience and know-how accumulated over many years.
Now have fun: wear Renaissance fashion aprons, use brushes, colors, soils, glues, shine with brass, silver, and gold leaves, paint with ancient lacquers, rub the beeswax, sign your work to make it unique!
Believe it or not, it's suggestive and fascinating to create an object that brings good luck and wellness within our homes.
During this workshop I will initially present to you my activity. After an introduction to the ancient art of stucco, we will go through the preparation of the dough base. Once we have done this, we will proceed with the pouring in the horn of plenty and pomegranates' molds. We'll then get ready for the leaf gilding. At this point we'll move to the leaf lightening of the relieves, before passing to the pictorial decoration and to the brush writing.
Once we are done with these stages, we'll be ready for the painting, the coating and the final lacquering.
At the end of the workshop I'll provide you with the object that you created, the booklet, the Diploma of Participation and the “weirdo license” of Gubbio. This envisages a really particular procedure to be carried out, exactly in front of my atelier!

SOME TIPS

This workshop is fun and suitable for everybody, even for the little ones!
The only warning is for those of you who are allergic to rubber gloves. If you can bring gloves of another material from home.

STUCCO WILL BRING YOU LUCK!

AMONG GYPSUM AND STUCCO

PATRIZIA, artisan of gypsum

This experience is for all those who want to discover the fascinating world of stucco. It is ancient art that consists in the transformation of the gypsum's dust into artworks. After a brief introduction to my activity, I'll introduce you to this craft, and I'll tell you of how is born my passion culminated with the opening of the artisan atelier. We'll then analyze the preparation of the various models, the creation of the ancient and modern molds, before doing the dough base. Once you learnt this, we'll run through the different production techniques, such as the pouring in the molds, the press and the etching. We'll thus go through the foundation of this wonderful art! We'll then together try to apply the notions you learnt previously, by creating a frame with metal mold. Later it will be completed with leaf gilding, coating and pictorial decoration. An educational experience for everyone who wants to learn something about this world, within an atelier where everyday “you get your hands dirty”!

BUCCHERO, THE BLACK TERRACOTTA

Gaetano, artisan of bucchero

216

The day will begin with a brief presentation of our atelier and an introduction to the main working techniques of pottery. In particular we'll focus on the Bucchero. At this point we'll be ready to put into practice that described, but first we'll have to familiarize with the tools. We'll then wear an apron and we'll clean the object with sandpaper and steel wool until we removed all the scratches of turning. Once we completed these operations, we'll polish the surface rubbing it with boxwood sticks. After that we'll engrave it by choosing a decorative technique between freehand drawing and pouncing. To complete the product we just have to fill the etchings with gold and platinum by using small brushes. We'll eat local products without cutlery, just with our hands. You'll then try the "crescia" which is a particular non-rised bread with the round shape that is cooked on carbon. It can be combined with cheeses, cured meats, cooked vegetables or sausages. After having signed the piece, we'll have to wait it to be dried out, and only then we can fire it. This will be done at a later stage in the open countryside. It is so since the process requires the use of coal with the resulting formation of black powder, moreover it has to be done when you have many pieces to be put within the furnace. Finished the firing, that consists in reaching about 900° C. in ten hours, and the consecutive cooling in 48 hours, we'll send the object to you at no extra costs everywhere in Italy. The day will end in the most beautiful square of Gubbio, in front of the “Palazzo dei Consoli”. We will get there by means of a neighboring elevator to the meeting place and we'll talk, sipping an aperitif, of medieval architecture, of the size and shape of the Palace resulting from the application of symbolic relationships related to esoteric numerology.
