HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

This hands-on workshop is for adults only. Paola invites you, new investigators, in her lab in Milan, very close to the famous Navigli. You will become the protagonists of an experience in first person, turning pieces of "technological archeology", destined to landfill and apparently insignificant, in unique customized jewelry, whose transparency enhances the high-tech spirit of the XXI century and projects those who wear them towards the future era of recycling and cyber existence.

During the workshop,that will last four hours, you will develop the following steps with the help of Paola and her team:
1. taking apart of the device and selection of the most interesting pieces,
2. creative composition,
3. casting.
The remaining steps will be accomplished in the laboratory with the delivery of the finished jewel by Christmas.

SOME TIPS

I suggest to bring with you some old and not working high-tech devices, still intact: we will take apart them during the workshop.
You can bring with you: alarm clocks, watches, PC, cellphones, cameras, cd reader, mp3 reader, tablet, smartphone, notebook; if you don't have any don't worry, we will provide you the materials!

If you start from scratch, we offer an intensive four hours immersion in knitting at our Atelier in Milan. Together with the first steps of knitting, you will discover the history and culture of these techniques that have been used since the 4th century a.C.. You will learn to start the mesh with an iron and two irons and the basic stitch. During this day, with the stitches you've learned you will be able to directly realize a cap or a neck warmer with a drawstring!

WORKSHOP

PRINTING AND ENGRAVING

Agnes, ceramist

150

I also love engravings along with printing techniques on nylon slabs, in my workshop I have a press roller that will allow us to print manually. All you have to bring with you - apart from comfortable clothes and a apron - is a nice photo or a drawing (if you do not have one we will provide one for you). In the first part of this workshop you will engrave what you wish on the nylon sheet with a cold engraving needle. Then we will have a brief rest in the atelier, have a chat and a small vegetarian lunch (glass of wine included). We will then start again and prepare the stencil to be printed: colored or not they will be put to soak. When the paper and your stencils are ready we will print a first copy to check the quality of the engravings: if you are not satisfied with some of the details you will have the opportunity to correct them. After that we will do the final print! You will be able to take home the various copies in a folder along with your stencil. If the copies are still too wet to bring home I will send them to you during the next few days (the sending price to Italy is included in the price of the workshop).

WORKSHOP

YOUR POTTERY CUP

Elisa, ceramist

72

I offer some hours spent together in my atelier. We will talk about the pottery production and I will explain you the basic techniques to create an object. You can try various techniques, such as “a pollice”, “a colombino”, “della lastra”. After that you'll choose your favorite to create your own cup. I'll assist you during the process. You are going to decide the shape and I will lead you during all the production process. You'll see that your idea will easily take shape in your hands. If you want to decorate it, you can choose whether to color it, to etch it, to use stamps or to add some low relief motives. Once the object is done, you can finally sign your artwork. I will take care of the cooking once it is dried out. Later I'll glaze it as we agreed upon and I'll send it to you. The shipping in Italy is not extra charged.
