HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

Do you want to play with the glass beads in my colorful lab with your family? It seems like being in a treehouse! You will learn how to string beads as the Venetian "Impiraresse" do, and the kids will challenge their parents in some games of skill and fantasy. Then, once you get familiar with this art, we will create a little wonderful present that you will carry with you to remember our meeting. And if you want to discover more about the venetian glass beads, their preciousness and their travels to far horizons, I will be happy to tell you some good stories about them. Trust me, we will have fun!

SOME TIPS

You don't need any special equipment (only glasses if you need it and the will to play)
• I have to say that I don't have a toilet in my lab unfortunately

IMPIRARESSA FOR ONE DAY

Marisa, glass bead

Do you like creating objects with beads? Are you interested in the various techniques for threading ordinary and Venetian glass beads how the "impiraresse", threaders of glass beads from once upon a time used to? Would you like to see how I use them now? This workshop then is perfect for you! We will learn about Venetian beads, how they traveled across the world and how they are used, we will decide how best to use them to create your own jewelry! I will share with you all I've learned during a life time with glass beads! Take the most of it as we "impiraresse" tend to be volatile and I may change my mind ;) The only thing I will not be teaching is working with corals, as it is a secret, but the rest of my knowledge is at your disposal in my small and colorful workshop in the center of Venice.

FAMILY TOUR AT THE GOLDBEATER

Marino, goldbeater

30

This 40 minutes guided tour is perfect for a family since it is available for maximum 5 people. In the workshop of the venetian Battiloro, the only one in Italy and in Europe that turns gold bars into thin leaves following a method of the 18C, you will understand and observe how they actually transform this precious material. We will show this noble craft in all its stages inside the palace of the famous painter Titian. We will explain the different applications of those thin gold leaves. In the historic workshop, that is still intact since 1926, gold, silver and other precious metals are transformed into thin leaves, suitable for applications in many fields. The added value of our family-run business is the artisanal production and the passion that drives us: in fact, the whole working process is carried out with the old wisdom and the wealth of human labor. A unique experience that will make you touch gold with your hands!
