HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

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.

SOME TIPS

I suggest to wear comfortable clothing.
The reported time is indicative, it is possible to agree on a different time.
A minimum of 2 people is required, so bookings for couples are welcome.
The course is also suitable for children aged 8/9, obviously with the help of an adult.
In case you want to carry out the experience individually, do not hesitate to contact me to request a specific program.
On request it is possible to have a translator for English and other languages.

During this 2 hours visit inside the old workshop, you will learn about the intaglio carving craft, appreciating especially the technique commonly known as "foro-controforo". You will participate in a practical demonstration during which all the various traditional stages of production will be displayed: we will start with the preparation of woods before going through the cut stage carried out with a small arch, then we will proceed with the assembly and sandblasting just before the glueing and then finish with the French polishing. Moreover, we will discuss about other inlay techniques such as the so-called "a toppo" and "a buio".
