Do you know how many stitches there are within a jacket??Do you think they all are the same?? Well, to create a tailor-made jacket you have to do five different typologies of stitches!

Here you will find out, through needle and thread, the “Punto Mosca”, “Soppunto”, “Punto Strega” and the “Punto Invisibile”, which are the bedrocks of the handmade needlecraft!

YOUR WOODEN INLAYED FLOWER

Renato, inlayer

During this 4-hour workshop I will show you the various wooden inlay techniques: fretwork, "buio", "toppo", the perspective inlay and the boulle technique. In particular, the fretwork technique will be studied in depth with demonstrations of the various processing phases, up to the final polishing. Afterwards, we'll try an easy workshop, where you'll learn the use of the fretworked arch, and I'll show you how to create three small inlays with floral motifs which will also be sandblasted. Three wooden flowers made by your hands, that you'll bring home as a perfect souvenir of this experience and that can be used as a bookmark.
