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.

REALIZE YOUR INLAY

Renato, inlayer

A one week holiday in Florence to visit the city, its museums and its churches but, above all, the perfect occasion to learn the basics of inlay right inside an old traditional workshop. During the 24 hours course (4h per day from Monday to Saturday, in the morning or afternoon) you will realize some inlay works experimenting different traditional techniques. At the end of the course you will bring home the artifacts and most of all you will have the knowledge you’ll need to create other brand new works on your own.

WORKSHOP

SECRETS OF A TAILOR

Rossella, tailoring

48

Do you know how many stitches there are within a jacket??Do you think they all are the same?? Well, to create a tailor-made jacket you have to do five different typologies of stitches! If you are curious about which ones they are and how to realize them, I will invite you to my Atelier. Here you will find out, through needle and thread, the “Punto Mosca”, “Soppunto”, “Punto Strega” and the “Punto Invisibile”, which are the bedrocks of the handmade needlecraft!

WORKSHOP

GILDING ON WOOD

Stefania & Carlo, restorers

69

We will work together for about one hour, depending on the number of participants. We will begin with a brief introduction to the art of gilding, in which we will introduce you to the materials and decorative techniques by which you can understand the historical placements of the object. We will explain how gouache and mission gilding works and give some hints about the techniques of restoration of gilded and lacquered wooden works. For the practical part, you will get to try mission gilding of a small wooden object of Florentine manufacture and its subsequent aging. The wooden object provided by the school for rehearsal will be given to you free of charge as a memento of your visit.
