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.

JOURNEY OF A JEWEL

Enrica, goldsmith workshop

20

I would love to take you to my kingdom for few hours. I want to show you how I make my jewels, from the initial idea until its realization in wax with the ancient technique called “lost wax”. I will show you some kind of jewelery waxes and the tools that I use. These are needed to create little sculptures that will become jewels once cast in silver or bronze. I will also would like to show you the final manufacturing made on the piece of metal. The way in which it is completed, welded with the gas torch, and the way in which pearls and stones are set. It takes time and experience to create a jewel with the lost wax technique. That is why this will be a short but intense visit so you can have a little taste of this creative and ancient craft.

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.
