HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Gerd Rothmann is a master goldsmith and his contribution in making the theme of unique jewel internationally recognized has been huge.
The unique jewel is the one made with your fingerprint, or with that of a person we love.
In this hands-on workshop we will re-elaborate this concept and you’ll be able to make your own brass jewel, under my guidance. Once in my studio, you’ll be fingerprinted and we will decide together if you are going to create a pendant or a ring.
Then we will proceed with some sketches and the design before the actual realization of the jewel in wax. The experience will end with the creation of the wax jewel, after which I will send it to a specialized lab in order to brass molding it with the lost wax casting.
I will then pick it up and polish it before sending it to you within 10 days after our meeting.

SOME TIPS

The workshop is activated for a minimum of 2 people.
Wear comfortable clothes and avoid light colors.
Don't bring big bags with you, the space is not that wide.
Tie your hair if they are as long as mine!

WORKSHOP

BURIN ENGRAVING CLASS

Negar, goldsmith

108

The workshop starts for a minimum of 2 partecipants. 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.

WORKSHOP

YOUR CUSTOM-MADE HAT

Renato, milliner

300

The workshop includes a short presentation of the work of the milliner and hatmaker, in which the different spaces of the atelier are shown, and the different activities that are carried out there. Then we move on to the making phase, which is organized as follows: 1 hour of preparing the hat shape (possible materials: sisal,straw or felt) from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.; lunch break circa 2 hours, and then from 2 to 5 p.m. we will work to finish and decorate the hat made previously. This particular type of craftsmanship involves fixing the hat shape in a kind of oven. This procedure requires a break time between the first stage of work and the next one, during which the work will be refined and finished.

For the practical part, you will get to try mission gilding of a small wooden object of Florentine manufacture and its subsequent aging.
