Filigree course in Florence

(1 customer review)


This is a professional course who would like to learn to create filigrees using the artisan’s ancient techniques and entirely by hand. Each filigree element is welded to the others by hand on their points of contact, allowing to obtain a very delicate, unique and organic shape. Each trainee, personally followed by the master-craftsman, acquires skills through the creation of a filigree element, realized in silver and entirely by hand. Courses for beginners last 12 weeks (9 hours per week). Advanced courses last 8 weeks (9 hours per week). Courses start every Monday (except during August); course materials are included. The programme includes, among others, the following sections:

  • Introduction to ancient tools and materials
  • Welding techniques with gas flame and microflame (for beginners)
  • Realization of twisted wires and other special wires
  • Assembly of filigree elements
  • Filigree modelling
