HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

We will work together for about one hour, depending on the number of participants.
We will begin with a brief introduction to the art of gilding, in which we will introduce you to the materials and decorative techniques by which you can understand the historical placements of the object.
We will explain how gouache and mission gilding works and give some hints about the techniques of restoration of gilded and lacquered wooden works.
For the practical part, you will get to try mission gilding of a small wooden object of Florentine manufacture and its subsequent aging. The wooden object provided by the school for rehearsal will be given to you free of charge as a memento of your visit.

SOME TIPS

The course times listed are approximate; it is possible to take the course in the morning or in the afternoon.
The cost shown is for the workshop for one person. If you are in a group of several people send a message for an experience with a tailored price. Children can participate in the presence of their parents.
We are closed during the month of August.

WORKSHOP

YOUR CUSTOM-MADE HAT

Renato, milliner

300

The workshop includes a short presentation of the work of the milliner and hatmaker, in which the different spaces of the atelier are shown, and the different activities that are carried out there. Then we move on to the making phase, which is organized as follows: 1 hour of preparing the hat shape (possible materials: sisal,straw or felt) from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.; lunch break circa 2 hours, and then from 2 to 5 p.m. we will work to finish and decorate the hat made previously. This particular type of craftsmanship involves fixing the hat shape in a kind of oven. This procedure requires a break time between the first stage of work and the next one, during which the work will be refined and finished.

SPECIAL

YOUR UNIQUE JEWEL

Negar, goldsmith

180

Gerd Rothmann is a master goldsmith and his contribution in making the theme of unique jewel internationally recognized has been huge. The unique jewel is the one made with your fingerprint, or with that of a person we love. In this hands-on workshop we will re-elaborate this concept and you’ll be able to make your own brass jewel, under my guidance. Once in my studio, you’ll be fingerprinted and we will decide together if you are going to create a pendant or a ring. Then we will proceed with some sketches and the design before the actual realization of the jewel in wax. The experience will end with the creation of the wax jewel, after which I will send it to a specialized lab in order to brass molding it with the lost wax casting. I will then pick it up and polish it before sending it to you within 10 days after our meeting.

TAILOR-MADE DRAWING

Rossella, tailoring

Have you ever wondered where does the inspiration to realize a dress come from?? In my case the inspiration are my clients. I interpret their dreams and their needs. I support them and suggest them which are the lines and the colors that could enhance their personality. Are you curious about getting to know how to go from the personality to the drawing? I invite you to try this experience during an explanatory talk and a first draft of the drawing thought just for you!
