CIRKUITA: HIGH-TECH JEWELS
Paola, jewels designer
This hands-on workshop is for adults only. Paola invites you, new investigators, in her lab in Milan, very close to the famous Navigli. You will become the protagonists of an experience in first person, turning pieces of "technological archeology", destined to landfill and apparently insignificant, in unique customized jewelry, whose transparency enhances the high-tech spirit of the XXI century and projects those who wear them towards the future era of recycling and cyber existence. During the workshop,that will last four hours, you will develop the following steps with the help of Paola and her team: 1. taking apart of the device and selection of the most interesting pieces, 2. creative composition, 3. casting. The remaining steps will be accomplished in the laboratory with the delivery of the finished jewel by Christmas.
THE MANY SCENTS OF MAGICAL HERBS
The workshop experience entails a visit to the company’s farm and various agricultural venues, followed by Antonella’s expert guidance. After a short walk among the century-old chestnut trees, immersed in the scents coming from the herb garden, you may choose to participate in the “Erbe Magiche” workshop. From collecting the herbs to packaging them, you will discover all their medicinal qualities or, alternatively, follow cooking classes that present exclusive recipes for sweet and savory cookies and biscuits. To top the day off, lunch and dinner will present products from the company and nearby territory.
HOW TO MAKE A HAT
Not many people know how to make a hat, which are the steps to get to the final product, creating it by hand, with the help of a few tools, an object that will be appreciated by those who recognize the true craftsmanship. We will show you the whole process, from the wooden shape to the finished hat. The experience will last an hour and an half more or less.
