HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The creative experience is a path that we will do together in order to understand the important phases of the processing of ceramic art while creating a custom object decorated by you. In fact you will have the opportunity to get familiar with the ancient technique of majolica decorating an earthenware artifact made available by the laboratory (plate, cup or tile ...) or creating a little jewel. You will have a taste of history with paints and brushes in your hands: majolica is made in Italy since a long time ago (Deruta, Faenza, Amalfi etc.) and it consists in the clay coated with a layer of glaze and painted with oxides and soils. This technique is therefore the result of a long tradition, to which you can combine the originality of decorations: my ceramics are conceived in this way and the creative experience that we will share will confirm it. What you will create will be unique and, of course, it will be yours: you can pick it up at the laboratory after cooking or you can receive it by mail (in Italy) without any additional charge.

SOME TIPS

I suggest you some comfortable clothes and an apron if you don't want to get dirty.
If you want the item created to be shipped abroad we need to understand together how to do it.
This experience is perfect for a couple.

Maria Antonietta, ceramist

With this experience we will travel along the creative path that I follow to make my ceramics; it is therefore provided a full tour of the laboratory during which I will explain the main stages of the realization of artistic ceramics and I'll tell you about the history of traditional and contemporary ceramics in Umbria, illustrating the tools that enable the production of my creations. You will also have the opportunity to do a little test of painting on ceramics. To complete the experience I will show you some of my works located along the picturesque street of the old town where my lab is.

SPECIAL

IN THE SIGN OF

Maria Josè, restorer

132

Do you want to learn the techniques of the XVI century knowledge? We'll show you and tell you our manual skills in restoration, in faithful reproduction of vintage furniture, in cabinetmaking, in painting and gilding. We'll re-experience emotions, the study, the passion in doing the faithful reproduction of the “Studiolo del Duca di Montefeltro”, of which the original is located at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. We'll have lunch together in a typical restaurant of Gubbio. Later we'll go together to see the replica of the “Studiolo del Duca di Montefeltro”. We created it and now it is possible to see it in its original location, at the Doge's Palace in Gubbio. In this important context, you'll have the chance to admire other fine artifacts that we restored.

WORKSHOP

FIRST STEPS TOWARD MINIATURE

Anna, miniature and typography

96

In the wake of ancient amanuensis, the gestures of calligraphers and miniaturists are living again. In the XIII century they gave life to flourishing and eminent “Scriptorum” in Gubbio. It stands out the figure of Oderisi, narrated by Dante in The Divine Comedy, XI Canto of Purgatory: “non se tu Oderisi, l'onor d'Agobbio e l'onor di quell'arte ch'alluminar chiamata è in Parisi?”. A fascinating art, made of pigments and gold leaves, goose feathers and nibs, inks and a lot of patience and knowledge. The final result though, is unique, and what you bring back home with you is such a precious and original object.
