HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

During this 2 hours visit inside the old workshop, you will learn about the intaglio carving craft, appreciating especially the technique commonly known as "foro-controforo".
You will participate in a practical demonstration during which all the various traditional stages of production will be displayed: we will start with the preparation of woods before going through the cut stage carried out with a small arch, then we will proceed with the assembly and sandblasting just before the glueing and then finish with the French polishing.
Moreover, we will discuss about other inlay techniques such as the so-called "a toppo" and "a buio".

SOME TIPS

If you want to set a different time for your visit of course we can arrange it.
The experience will take place only if a minimum of 2 participants are taking part to it. If you want to have a one-to-one experience please send me a private message and I will set up a specific schedule for you.
