A DAY IN THE JOINERY WORKSHOP
Sara & Ilaria, ebony joiner
We have worked for over 40 years in the production of high quality furniture. The company is located in the amazing countryside of Abruzzo, a perfect place to shape ideas and projects. The experience consists of a guided tour in the great joinery lab where traditional techniques and technological processes are the tools through which works of cabinet-making are created. Participants will be able to understand how a product is made, from design and construction analysis, to the choice of material until the realization in the laboratory. You can also learn more about the techniques of painting; from preparation to finishing, application of gold leaf (on request) or painting techniques combined with traditional painting systems. The hans-on workshop is dedicated to those who have the need, even for professional reasons, to know and better understand the processes related to the production of furniture.
