Create an original silver jewel
We'll meet in a small pastry café, not so well known in the city, but where you can taste the best croissants in Florence! You will be my guests for a welcome breakfast! 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 or creating a new one. I will help you individually to achieve the best result, and, in the mold just carved, I will pour the molten silver so you can immediately see your rough jewel which, once polished, will certainly be your best memory of Florence! After the "hard" work will be my pleasure to invite you in a library coffee bar with a beautiful secret garden to chill with a glass of wine, prosecco or a soft drink... …the best way to end a great experience! The jewel you will create still needs some work to be finished. It will be ready to take away in the late afternoon or the following morning. No special knowledge or skills are required.

But we will also take you out of the city to the surrounding hills that have made Florence as famous as its museums and works of art. The stages we choose together, depending on time, day of the week and especially according to your tastes! Other things to note We provide rain coat for passengers in case of (not too hard!) rain.

If the class is private, your group will be able to choose 1 design to paint together. If the class is public, we will send photos of designs to choose from and the design will be chosen by popular vote no less than 12 hours before the class. During the lesson time, we teach 1 design for the group to paint together. Check out what our clients have painted at @vinoevinci! ** We cannot host this experience for only 1 (one) person. If you are the only student to have booked for a given time, we will do our best to reschedule with you and add you to a class that is booked with more than 1 person. If it is impossible to work out a time that works for everyone, we will gladly give you a refund. Most rescheduling will happen the day before the experience and maximum up to 1 hour before the experience.
