13-14-15-16-17 March 2019
The main goal of this course is to learn the basics of metal work for creating ceramic jewelry, particularly porcelain. The course is essentially practical, based on experimentation with the main basic techniques of jewelry: measurements and marking, perforated internal and external, filing and polishing, firing, pickling, welding, etc. In a complementary way, some pieces of porcelain will be processed in order to practice assembly and final finishes. During the course, theoretical aspects on the characteristics and type of ceramic materials and metals will also be provided.
Will be 5 days where you will face different practical exercises such as the creation of strips, wires and plates of metal, the learning of welding with silver, perforated, polishing, sanding, realization of the pieces in porcelain designed and fired and finally, assembled with the metal parts. The materials will be provided and each student will have his work table with the necessary equipment. Everyone can take home not only their knowledge but also their finished works.

Quando ci si avvicina al mondo della ceramica spesso si incontrano le prime difficoltà già nella fase di modellazione proprio per mancanza di competenze nelle tecniche di foggiatura dei manufatti. Gli impasti ceramici e le argille possono essere lavorati in diversi modi e in questo corso di base ci proponiamo di introdurvi ad alcune delle tecniche fondamentali come il colombino, la lastra, la stampatura e il colaggio.
La scelta del tipo di argilla da impiegare ed individuare la migliore tecnica di modellazione per la produzione delle forme sarà di basilare importanza per avere successo nel portare a termine i vostri progetti ed evitare perdite di tempo e di denaro.
Il corso non è finalizzato alla realizzazione di oggetti finiti ma si limita alla produzione in libertà di esperienze costruttive, tattili e di cottura sempre sotto la guida del docente.

One of the finest qualities of porcelain is its sensuality to the touch, plus the surface can be enriched with vibrant colors or sharp contrasts of black and white. There are ancient and complex techniques of the "Neriage" family which, with a modern twist, allow to express, through many aesthetic solutions, from a jewel, a vase, a sculpture, an object, to a complex installation. Among the constructive techniques of colored body porcelain, by hand and with mold will be the contemporary revisiting of: L'Agata, Jasper, Zebra, Nerikomi, Mosaico with composite tiles and Mishima.
To take full advantage of the potential of these techniques, all the possible exercises will be carried out to get to know their strength and refinement. In addition, the realization of all the techniques will be followed by the tricks to avoid problems, breakages or deformations, reaching the maximum of beauty in the colors.
The 20-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Friday and Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.Included in the Workshop cost: 20 hours of teaching | all the necessary materials | firings | nr. 3 brunch lunch | a box with the samples of the materials used during the workshop

Una buona ceramica si distingue non solo per come è rivestita e la sua intrinseca arte ma sopratutto per il suo corpo che è forte e compatto quando è realizzata in gres. Oggi è possibile utilizzare un innovativo gres bianco, anche senza raggiungere la faticosa e costosa alta temperatura, ed avere la sinterizzazione di questa argilla in tutti i tipi di forni per ceramica.
Durante il corso faremo anche esperienza di come sia possibile ridurre ulteriormente i costi facendo una cottura unica di argilla e smalti che viene infatti definita monocottura. Useremo un'argilla plastica che rende facile modellare qualsiasi tipo di forma e particolari medium per l'applicazione a pennello di rivestimenti che saranno campiti anche con l'impiego di maschere adesive. Sara possibile infine anche applicare, in seconda cottura a 900 gradi, un simpatico e innovativo smalto oro.
Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.Compreso nel corso:
