HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Visit to the laboratory + personalization of your hat.
I will tell you all about my job and I will offer you an overview about its secrets. I will tell you how to shape a hat by hand, and show you the materials which it is made of, the tools and the wooden shapes.
You can see and touch ancient tools and learn more about this rare craft.
We will talk about the different models, about hats for men and for women and about hat etiquette.
After this introduction you can start to customize your hat.
You will have a unisex hat with brim, felt or parasisol, previously modeled by me and you will choose and apply the finishing band of the dome.
You will live a beautiful experience, coming back home with new skills and a hat made entirely of high quality materials.
The duration will be about 2 hours.

SOME TIPS

The gulf of La Spezia and its famous surroundings are wonderful and a visit to my workshop will be an interesting interlude in your holiday: A quick peek on a beautiful craft, strongly rooted in the Italian craftsmanship tradition that will allow you to continue your walks wearing your personal tailor made hat!

IL CAPPELLO ED I SUOI SEGRETI

Maria-Federica, milliner

Apertura del laboratorio alle visite. Vi racconterò del mio mestiere e vi offrirò una panoramica sui suoi segreti. Racconterò come nasce un cappello fatto a mano, vi mostrerò i materiali di cui è fatto, gli attezzi e le forme che si usano per modellarlo. Potrete vedere e toccare utensili antichi e saperne di più su un mestiere ormai raro. Parleremo dei diversi modelli di cappello da uomo e da donna e di etichetta e galateo. Una pausa interessante di circa un'ora fra una giornata di escursioni alle 5 Terre ed una visita alla città della Spezia.

WORKSHOP

CREATE YOUR NUGGET

Enrica, goldsmith workshop

60

In this workshop I will help you transform some old silver pieces into little nuggets. These can be turned into pendants or rings that could be personalized with your initials. A nice memory to bring back home. To make your nugget even more personalized, you can take some small pieces of broken jewels of yours. These will be tested, and later we can melt them through a gas torch. Then, by using a hammer, a file and sand paper we will shape them. This is just a little taste of the jeweler's job...

HOW TO MAKE A HAT

Renato, milliner

84

Not many people know how to make a hat, which are the steps to get to the final product, creating it by hand, with the help of a few tools, an object that will be appreciated by those who recognize the true craftsmanship. We will show you the whole process, from the wooden shape to the finished hat. The experience will last an hour and an half more or less.
