What you'll do
We'll meet for a welcome coffee and italian breakfast in a tea house 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 ancient and simple technique of cuttlebone casting. This is exclusively a lesson in which you will not actively participate in the creation of the jewel. If you want to make your jewel, take a look at another of my offerings: https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/117374 After the lesson/demonstration, we'll go to visit the very important fresco at "Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia" which is an undiscovered beauty nearby, one of the first examples of perspective paintings made by Andrea del Castagno... To close the circle we'll be back to the garden to greet each other with a glass of wine or prosecco!
Coffee and breakfast Typical italian breakfast (coffee or cappuccino and croissant sweet or salty)
Aperitivo Tuscany red wine (Chianti), prosecco or soft drinks and appetizers

Where you'll be
We meet (and we greet) in a bar with a beautiful garden that I love and which is close to my workshop and the central train station. After the coffee we'll go to my lab where I'll teach you my favourite techinque. At the end we'll visit the Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia... A place you need to discover!
