THE STORY

My workshop is in Anghiari, Tevere valley, and I welcome anyone interested in learning all the secrets of wood craftsmanship, from carving to marquetry, all the way to furniture restoration: I’ll teach you all about what I have learned since my beginning as a wood artisan in 1989.
My work is a piece of history, the kind that takes a long time to get into manuals and school books.
Being able to touch a piece of wood, shape it or give it new life and save it from collecting dust is an art capable of getting eyes to appreciate beauty.
What I offer you is a cultural vacation to learn the secrets of a trade that is old but still very actual.
Classes and visits are open to everybody, particularly to who wants to learn how to work with wood artistically talking or to who wants to stay up to date with the latest woodworking techniques, its conservation and restoration methods.

WOOD INLAYING 5 DAYS WORKSHOP

SANTI, ebony joiner

This course is spread on 5 days of 6 hours each. Here you’ll be able to learn all about marquetry: both theory and practice will be covered together, discovering the history of this trade, testing different methods and materials. You’ll learn the differences between different kinds of wood and how all the tools work. As a starter you’ll be given the book Tarsi that contains all the notes I’ve taken during my 40 years of activity and you’ll be able to take whatever you made during the course home! If you want to cover special techniques or make a specific piece you can ask for a custom course by sending me a message.

YOUR OWN MARQUETRY PROJECT

SANTI, inlayer

Is there anything more fascinating than learning the art of marquetry directly in the workshop of the Master Artisan or being able to restore an art piece while in the beautiful small town of Anghiari in the Valtiberina in Tuscany? The course will be held in my workshop where you’ll be able to get to know the tools of my trade by completing a small marquetry project or learn how to approach the restoration process of an antique piece of wooden furniture. I’ll welcome you to my shop and we’ll have Vin Santo and cantuccini while I’ll tell you about the theory regarding marquetry. Then I’ll follow you through the completion of your woodworking project that you’ll be able to bring home as a memento of this small but important experience. We can offer a translation service to English on request.

The courses will be held in my workshop where you’ll be able to get to know the tools of my trade by completing a small marquetry project or learn how to approach the restoration process of an antique piece of wooden furniture. I’ll welcome you to my shop and we’ll have Vin Santo, fruit juice and cantuccini while I’ll tell you about the materials and tools of my work. Then I’ll follow you through the making and finishing of a small project that you’ll get to take home along with a mounting box that will allow you to put your project together once home using the techniques learned during the course. The price is intended for a family group of 3 or 4 people. If you should need a different option, please ask in the green box "customized experience": it will be a pleasure for me to find out the right solution for you. We can offer a translation service to English on request.
