Firenze nell'Arte: art and craftsmanship workshops
In the neighbourhoods of Santo Spirito and San Frediano artisan workshops and artists' studios still operate producing objects which are the fruit of refined workmanship and techniques that have been handed down for centuries. To learn about this heritage, in collaboration with Florentine artists and artisans, we have promoted a wide range of workshops allowing participants to learn an artistic technique and refine it, working directly with the master in his workshop.
Through this programme we hope to increase awareness of this fascinating reality: a productive and cultural presence that we believe is a heritage for the entire world. Programmes include individual and group workshops, with a duration that can range from two weeks to six months, during times and days to be agreed upon, based on the respective needs of the teacher and student. All workshops are taught in Italian.
