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.

GOLDSMITHING AND WEAVING

Negar, goldsmith

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.
