HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

I would like to propose a specific course on "love pottery" to those who decide to spend a lovely day together, or would like to do an original gift to the beloved person, to a couple who is getting married or for a wedding anniversary.
This art was born in my territory towards the end of the 15th century when, also thanks to the influence of the Renaissance love poems, the lovers and the betrothed used to give their loved ones their portrait drawn on a majolica platter.
This is where my workshop starts from. First you will draw the profile of the person you love on a sheet of paper, then you will reproduce it on a ceramic platter, using the ancient technique of dusting. You can customize your artifact adding the features of the person that you are painting, and then a love sentence, a name or a dedication.
I will tell you the secrets of this wonderful technique and we will study together all the details of the beautiful colors of majolica. After the cooking, your artifact will be sent home (free of charge for residents in Italy).

SOME TIPS

Comfortable clothing; all the rest is available in my shop.
The shipping of the artifact in ceramic is included in the price only for shipments in Italy.
At the end of the workshop I will give you a lovely gift, to thank you for the experience in my lab.
The price includes the possibility to have lunch in a restaurant where you can taste the specialities of the Montefeltro territory.

WORKSHOP

REPRODUCTION OF A FRESCO

Linda, majolica decorator

150

What I want to offer is not just a decorative experience, but also a historical and cultural one. With the help and the experience of my friend Agata, you will visit two important historic churches in Cagli. Thanks to her knowledge you will see some medieval fresco. St. Joseph Church with the XIV century fresco representing the “Madonna del Latte”. St. Francis with the fresco of Mello from Gubbio. After a brief but intense visit to the churches, we will reproduce, on a majolica refractory tile, a detail of the fresco saw previously. We will analyze the detail to be drawn through the pouncing technique. We will use the “half dye” for the shades of the ruddiness. You will get to know the main characteristic of the brushes and of the majolica's colors. Until the cooking of the object. The workshop is thought for all those people interested in knowing and experiencing the majolica's art through the culture of the artworks that characterize my precious territory.

SPECIAL

IN THE SIGN OF

Maria Josè, restorer

132

Do you want to learn the techniques of the XVI century knowledge? We'll show you and tell you our manual skills in restoration, in faithful reproduction of vintage furniture, in cabinetmaking, in painting and gilding. We'll re-experience emotions, the study, the passion in doing the faithful reproduction of the “Studiolo del Duca di Montefeltro”, of which the original is located at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. We'll have lunch together in a typical restaurant of Gubbio. Later we'll go together to see the replica of the “Studiolo del Duca di Montefeltro”. We created it and now it is possible to see it in its original location, at the Doge's Palace in Gubbio. In this important context, you'll have the chance to admire other fine artifacts that we restored.

WORKSHOP

FIRST STEPS TOWARD MINIATURE

Anna, miniature and typography

96

In the wake of ancient amanuensis, the gestures of calligraphers and miniaturists are living again. In the XIII century they gave life to flourishing and eminent “Scriptorum” in Gubbio. It stands out the figure of Oderisi, narrated by Dante in The Divine Comedy, XI Canto of Purgatory: “non se tu Oderisi, l'onor d'Agobbio e l'onor di quell'arte ch'alluminar chiamata è in Parisi?”. A fascinating art, made of pigments and gold leaves, goose feathers and nibs, inks and a lot of patience and knowledge. The final result though, is unique, and what you bring back home with you is such a precious and original object.
