HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The experience involves the creation of a notebook made of paper, leather, and string (of about 8x13cm in size). You may choose your favorite colored leather from the many in the bookbinding workshop. With Hans and Lucia’s guidance, you will be able to follow the different workshop phases, which include a medieval technique in the preparation of the paper sheets, which are sewn and bound directly onto the leather cover. This way, book cover and stitching make a single piece and the notebook will be ready in just a few steps. You may also personalize it with graphic or floral motifs, or with your initials, directly embossing the
chosen decoration on the surface. Finally, a leather string around the notebook will help tie it shut.

SOME TIPS

Keep in mind: dress comfortably! The company will provide workshop aprons.
Available dates: all days (except Christmas and August 15 th ), with mandatory reservation made at least 5 days ahead of time. Morning or afternoon. The experience lasts about 4 hours.
Suitable for children 12 and up. The workshop is also available in English or German, and may be carried out in other facilities upon request.

WORKSHOP

YOUR ARTWORK MADE IN TUSCIA

Cinzia, ceramist

For example, the thirteenth century feature green copper and manganese brown decorations, Saffron decorations, gray relief decoration and for the most skilled a realization of an Arul of Faul. After this you’ll have to transfer the chosen design by first dusting the support - plate or fragment of local stone called "Peperino"- in order to start painting with mineral oxides. After the painting phase the piece will be glazed and fired. At this point, you can choose to have your artwork shipped to your home (add shipping cost) or take it with you after two days.
