We'll meet for a welcome coffee in a bar with a beatiful and secret garden. Then we reach my small creative workshop (2 minutes walk) where I'll teach you, step by step, how to create a jewel using the technique of cuttlebone casting. This ancient technique, already known by the Egyptians more than 2000 years ago, is one of my favourites and it's easy to learn. The cuttlefish bone is easy to carve to make a mold that will be filled with melted silver. After my instuctions it will be your turn to project and carve the bone into the shape of your own jewel. You will make your personalized pendant or ring, choosing from the proposed models; I will help individually to reach the best result. In the mold just carved I will cast the melted silver and you'll see immediately the rough jewel. After the "hard" work we'll be back to the garden to chill with a glass of wine or prosecco!

We meet in a bar easy to reach from the train station or the Central market. I love the beatiful garden of the bar because it's very quiet and relaxing, the best place to know each other. After the coffee we will go to my lab where, after my teaching, you will create your own souvenir from Florence!
