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
Our master craftsman uses ancient and historical goldsmith techniques. Students are welcome into his wonderful, contemporary and new exhibition/work space, to learn the ancient skills of goldsmithery. This is a unique opportunity for students to experience these ancient jewellery techniques.
During the courses, students will have the opportunity to live and to learn this unique approach to jewellery. This is a one-to-one course, where the artisan works with one student at a time to completely focus on their individual development and learning; this course can be taught either in Italian or in English.
