HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Become a carver and printer for a day and create your first Japanese woodblock print. An afternoon to be introduced to the wonders of this ancient printing technique that does not require the use of solvents or acids. After a brief introduction where you will have the chance to admire some original vintage woodblocks and some original Ukiyo-e prints; I will explain you the steps to create your first print. At this point you can work at your own design, or you can let yourself inspire by the many books in the studio. Carve and print your first simple printing with two wooden matrices and then print more copies of them on Japanese paper.

SOME TIPS

In my atelier we do not use either acids or solvents, and all the materials used for printing are completely non-toxic. However the wood chips like to stick anywhere, I then recommend comfortable clothing and, in winter, hot.

A DAY AT THE ATELIER

Mara, engraver

An entire day to explore the wonderful world of Japanese printing. We will spend the entire day together: from 10 am until 6 pm (with a break of one hour for lunch) and you will have the opportunity to see all the steps that go into creating your own print. After the initial phase where you will learn about the techniques and see some original prints, you will be allowed cut out your first drawing (or you can take inspiration from one of the various books we have in our studio) and create your own 3 colour print on Japanese paper. This workshop is perfect for people who want to create their own cards or presents. This experience is for beginners and people wishing to improve their techniques: in case you have former experience please contact me in advance so I can prepare myself to accommodate your needs.

WORKSHOP

YOUR HAND-SEWN BOOK

Paola, bookbinder and restorer

72

This experience is for those who want to take a trip inside the magic world of bookbinding. You will discover the whole lab, the machineries and the working tools, but most of all I will tell you how they work and how a book is made. After this tour we will put our aprons on and start working in order to create your own hand-sewn book. You will decide how to make your book cover by choosing the material and I will teach you how to create a book only with needle and thread so that you’ll be able to do that. We will create together the structure of the book and the cover that can be personalized even with a golden engraving (yes, I will also show you how hot foil stamping is made!) The final work will then be a unique book to bring home with you as a keepsake of our experience together.

RESTORE YOUR BOOK

Giovanna e Bianca, restorers

In a warm and charming atmosphere you will learn how to restore a book, so that you can take care of your home library. You will exercise on a book that we will provide to you, utilizing some fundamental restorer's tools that you will bring home at the end of the experience. We will understand together how books are dismantled and how to stitch booklets, as well as how ripped sheets are recovered and finally how to give a perfect guise according to the style of the volume. During the working day we will have some tasty breaks to relax and have some pleasant chat from time to time.
