HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The visit will take place inside my studio - atelier and it will start with a brief history of our family which has been in the business of precious metals in Florence since 1908 .
In a second moment you will discover the secrets behind the realization of a precious object.
In the "mysterious" rooms in which all of our creations are conceived and shaped, we will tell you about the cornerstone of our work, so the ancient goldsmith techniques handed down from father to son.

SPECIAL

YOUR UNIQUE JEWEL

Negar, goldsmith

120

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.

WORKSHOP

YOUR WOODEN INLAYED FLOWER

Renato, inlayer

66

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.
