HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

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

SOME TIPS

The workshop does not require any manual experience; required work clothing; the workshop and perishable material is provided by Cubiarte.

WORKSHOP

YOUR SPECIAL MOSAIC

Matteo, mosaic maker

102

What better than your name can identify you? Decorate with a mosaic the initial of your name or of the person you want to give it to. Imagine the letter of your name with a mosaic part in it. You can use it to furnish an old dresser, a shelf, or any other place to bring your personality. In fact in this workshop you can decide the decoration and the color of the tiles. These will be used to fill up with a mosaic the etched space in the wooden letter. Later I'll show you how the marbles, stone-paste and gold leaf tiles are cut. We'll see how to lay the glue down and how to position the tiles to create the decoration of your personal letter. Of course, once the object will be finished, you can bring it back home with you. The only things I ask you is to tell me the chosen letter, so that you can find it ready to be decorated. Moreover you can choose between the blue or dove-grey color to paint the letter yourself. The workshop will last about 2/2.5 hours.

SPECIAL

"DRINKABLE PLANTS" IN SALENTO COUNTRYSIDE

Elia, liquorist

60

Liqueur and mixing techniques merge with the fascinating world of plants in an experience that shows how to prepare liquid ingredients such as infusions, syrups, liqueurs, bitters, up to "wild cocktails", starting from products found in nature. We will start with a walk in the typical environment of the Salento countryside, to get to know and recognize the spontaneous plants, their stories and their ancient and modern uses. It will be an awakening of the senses, which will stimulate and reactivate eyes, hands, nose and taste, for an open-air workshop, during which we will reveal tricks and curiosities of "wild foraging". From the countryside we will then pass behind the bar counter, for a short bartending lesson and for the preparation of cocktails with liqueurs and wild raw materials, which contain the alchemy of a truly special experience.
