HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The experience will last a whole day and will take place in the woods of the Tuscan hills. Here you can immerse yourself in my world, starting with a visit to the laboratory and continuing with the realization of a simple object of your choice, such as a belt. We will talk about all the stages od production, from dyeing to cutting, from hand-stitching to finishing wax. You will be my guest for lunch, so that you will see that leather is not my only passion! If time and weather will allow that, you can complete the day with a nice walk enjoying a breathtaking view.

SOME TIPS

It would be better if you take an apron and latex gloves with you, unfortunately I can't guarantee a pair for everyone.

We will tell you about the history and the state of art of this ancient, and somehow "lost" craft, showing you some secrets and some stylistic and technical aspects. Starting from a "simple mineral dust", with a practical exhibition we will took you back in time, when the ability and skills of the craftsman began with the preparation of the tools, the sketches and the color pigments. The realized artwork remains yours. Finally we will discuss together about the most important existing collection, with the practical support of some antique pieces, dating from the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, collected with great passion by our family.

WORKSHOP

TAILOR-MADE DRAPERY

Rossella, tailoring

96

Creating the drapery is an art. It is an ancient technique that derives from the necessity to cover up themselves. It has evolved during time, continuously improving, becoming a real discipline to build a paper pattern. It is seemingly easy to do it, but it actually hides a series of specific rules that are essential for the construction of a successful and perfect paper pattern. We will design an article of clothing together and we will try to drape it. This will be a way to get to know the basic drapery knowledge. If you really are curious though, I suggest you to become yourself the mannequin. You can thus observe through your drapery how the article takes shape on your body. This is so by choosing the movement and the lines. This is a unique experience to understand how the fabric can change your shapes. It is all up to the way the draped fabric is used.
