HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The courses will be held in my workshop where you’ll be able to get to know the tools of my trade by completing a small marquetry project or learn how to approach the restoration process of an antique piece of wooden furniture.
I’ll welcome you to my shop and we’ll have Vin Santo, fruit juice and cantuccini while I’ll tell you about the materials and tools of my work.
Then I’ll follow you through the making and finishing of a small project that you’ll get to take home along with a mounting box that will allow you to put your project together once home using the techniques learned during the course. The price is intended for a family group of 3 or 4 people. If you should need a different option, please ask in the green box "customized experience": it will be a pleasure for me to find out the right solution for you.
We can offer a translation service to English on request.

AMONG GYPSUM AND STUCCO

PATRIZIA, artisan of gypsum

20

This experience is for all those who want to discover the fascinating world of stucco. It is ancient art that consists in the transformation of the gypsum's dust into artworks. After a brief introduction to my activity, I'll introduce you to this craft, and I'll tell you of how is born my passion culminated with the opening of the artisan atelier. We'll then analyze the preparation of the various models, the creation of the ancient and modern molds, before doing the dough base. Once you learnt this, we'll run through the different production techniques, such as the pouring in the molds, the press and the etching. We'll thus go through the foundation of this wonderful art! We'll then together try to apply the notions you learnt previously, by creating a frame with metal mold. Later it will be completed with leaf gilding, coating and pictorial decoration. An educational experience for everyone who wants to learn something about this world, within an atelier where everyday “you get your hands dirty”!

We'll use the pounce technique, the original gilding technique (“doratura a guazzo”), and/or the painting with colors prepared as our ancestors used to do. You'll keep the final artwork as a memory of the morning we'll spend together.
