Andrea will lead you into a multi-dimensional world made of paper! He will tell you what Kirigami is. Briefly, it's an Eastern technique for working with paper and consists in carving and folding sheets to get two-dimensional shapes. The meaning of the term comes from the Japanese "kiru", cut and "kami", paper. Andrea will teach you the basic ways of folding paper in order to get to at least one of the original Kirigami. To learn more about the Kirigami and Pop-Up techniques we have, on request, twelve hours courses that last two days.

The Aremu association and Gruppo Cubiarte present to you a fascinating journey in learning how to make paper. In the itinerary we have put together the ancient Washi technique (oriental paper from the Han dynasty, 200 d.c.), with the medieval fabrianesi techniques (XIII century) we will also create paper from natural fibers extracted from Mediterranean plants. The course will be divided as follows: 1. Selection and picking of the natural fibers (common fig plant) 2. Skinning phloem 3. Beating and washing the cellulose paste 4. Creating the paper in a basin 5. Sieving and calendering 6. Distillation of the garriga vapors to perfume our sheets of paper 7. Coloring techniques with natural pigments: ficus carica leaves
