summer school

Our summerschool courses give the possibility to focus 1 or 2 weeks on creative work in a nice place surrounded with nature. This time we built up the studio in Lunigiana, Tuscany in Italy (near 5-Terre and Carrara)

Situated in a idyllic place with view over the hills and family atmosphere you will learn the basics of gold- and silversmithing starting with a cast of old material (if you have some old jewellery or silverware you don´t use anymore: bring it with you) inorder to create the wires and sheets you need for your own design.

Since the groops are very small (maximum 3 people) it´s possible to serve each level: beginners or advanced students.
