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.

SCAGLIOLA, BETWEEN ILLUSION AND REALITY

Elisabetta & Alessandro, scagliola

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.

BURIN ENGRAVING CLASS

Negar, goldsmith

During the experience in my showroom I will tell you about the burin engraving applied to goldsmith craft, we will have a brief conversation on this special technique from the traditional Florentine goldsmith culture to the contemporary usage. You will watch, touch and observe the jewels engraved following different techniques. Then we will move to my lab where I'll show you the manufacturing stages, the preparation of metallic sheet, the description of different types of burin and their usage, how to deal with some of my equipment. Of course I will also have a brief exhibition so that you will better understand the different kind of engraving. In the second part of the experience we will prepare the drawing that we are going to engrave, you will understand how to use the burin in order to sign the sketch. Now you can finally try it yourself, engrave the pattern and polish your artifact before having some final consideration. You will have the chance to take your creation away with you.
