HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

An hands-on workshop in my lab, where you will learn how to analyze an original piece, how to deal with the ancient techniques, understand the qualities, how to shape natural materials and spring units, respecting the style and functionality needs.
Then you will understand how to restore upholstered furniture entirely made by hand with natural materials: canvas and straps made of linen and jute; horsehair, vegetable and coconut’s filling; waddings of cotton; fabrics or leather for lining and finishing with trimming nails or “perlè” decorative effect.

WORKSHOP

CLAY SCULPTURE

Valerio, sculptor

270

We offer you an interesting and enjoyable journey discovering this discipline. Starting from the imprint obtained from the basalt sculpture we will form a clay and water mixture that, once dried, will be put in the oven. After the baking process, the participants will start defining the fine details of the shape, decorating it and finally smoothing it, followed by the signature. At the end of the day, in my lab near Rome, immersed in a beautiful countryside, all the participants will take home their Keo, the small Egyptian pharaoh they just made! You could also enjoy a simple but tasty meal in my workshop during your lunch break, or if you prefer to try some local food there is a Trattoria near my house.
