I will greet you at my atelier in the centre of Florence, five minutes walk from Firenze SMN train station. After a brief introduction, you will experience first hand the different phases of the antique art of etching: engraving a copper plate, printing on cotton paper and watercoloring the final result. No previous experience in art required as you will be guided through the whole process. During the experience, we will have a break and offer you a soft drink and local patisseries, when we can get to know each other. At the end of your experience you will take home the copper plate etched by you and your print in both black and white and watercolored versions, as a memento of an experience in this wonderful art form, which has captured my heart and I am passing onto you. The perfect experience to live the essence of this beautiful city full of masterpieces.
