HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Goldsmithing and weaving are two of the oldest forms of craftsmanship in the history of Man: combining these two arts in one "discipline" let you to create jewelry that are truly striking.
During the tour you can discover the various forms that the texture of a fine thread of silver can take: tubular, modular and regular shapes that are so close to perfection, or some more organic and irregular creations that have a more human “touch”. In our showroom you can see and touch the jewelry collections Aracne and Atena (it is no coincidence that they are referred to the the greek myth) where these "paintings" are transformed into earrings, rings and necklaces.
Later, visitors will enter the lab where they will see in practice how to create the silver wire and how it is woven.

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.

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.
