HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

As we are on the Como lake you will give your soap holder the shape of a stylized fish.
To decorate, you will use stones, fabrics, seashells and other objects to imprint on your still fresh piece.
At the end of this project your works will dry for a few days in the workshop, then after the first baking session I will fill in the print that you have made with a white polish and then bake the pieces for a second time at 1020 degrees centigrade.
The finished soap holder will then be sent to your address - if you live in Italy the sending price is included in the course.

SOME TIPS

Important: dress comfortably and bring an apron!

WORKSHOP

PRINTING AND ENGRAVING

Agnes, ceramist

150

I also love engravings along with printing techniques on nylon slabs, in my workshop I have a press roller that will allow us to print manually. All you have to bring with you - apart from comfortable clothes and a apron - is a nice photo or a drawing (if you do not have one we will provide one for you). In the first part of this workshop you will engrave what you wish on the nylon sheet with a cold engraving needle. Then we will have a brief rest in the atelier, have a chat and a small vegetarian lunch (glass of wine included). We will then start again and prepare the stencil to be printed: colored or not they will be put to soak. When the paper and your stencils are ready we will print a first copy to check the quality of the engravings: if you are not satisfied with some of the details you will have the opportunity to correct them. After that we will do the final print! You will be able to take home the various copies in a folder along with your stencil. If the copies are still too wet to bring home I will send them to you during the next few days (the sending price to Italy is included in the price of the workshop).

WORKSHOP

CIRKUITA: HIGH-TECH JEWELS

Paola, jewels designer

150

This hands-on workshop is for adults only. Paola invites you, new investigators, in her lab in Milan, very close to the famous Navigli. You will become the protagonists of an experience in first person, turning pieces of "technological archeology", destined to landfill and apparently insignificant, in unique customized jewelry, whose transparency enhances the high-tech spirit of the XXI century and projects those who wear them towards the future era of recycling and cyber existence. During the workshop,that will last four hours, you will develop the following steps with the help of Paola and her team: 1. taking apart of the device and selection of the most interesting pieces, 2. creative composition, 3. casting. The remaining steps will be accomplished in the laboratory with the delivery of the finished jewel by Christmas.

SPECIAL

YOUR BESPOKE EVENING HAT

Carlotta, milliner

240

To open the doors of a workshop means to unveil the most intimate secrets of a craftsman. A small world in which ideas are shaped by the most valuable tool that we have, our hands. And this will be our starting point. Through a tactile experience we will understand how to identify the key features of different fabrics. Every participant will challenge his creativity producing a bespoke evening hat. Starting from one of the fabrics proposed, you can choose to work with a base-made pattern or to adopt a fully-manual technique like the Moulage. Both methods will be explained and shown during the workshop. Moreover, I will show you some handling technique through which you can shape fabrics in order to give an even more personalized touch to your creation. The experience will last the whole day, from the morning until the afternoon. Timing are flexible, I will do what I can to meet your personal needs and requests. A buffet - lunch is scheduled on the fresh porch facing a wide garden.
