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.

WORKSHOP

YOUR HAND-SEWN BOOK

Paola, bookbinder and restorer

48

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.
