In a unique crafters and artists village I will welcome you to our association and teach you how to work with polymer clay. Polymer clay is a colored modeling clay which is hardened in oven. I will explain you tricks and tips of the ‘millefiori’ technique, which is amazing, well known among the masters of glass in Venice. And now I warn you that this art is addictive ... and the worst of all is that I have not yet found the antidote! We will decorate a cup of coffee, which you will take home to remember this experience every time you have a coffee. While your creations are baked and left to cool (40 minutes), we will visit the neighborhood.
I'm a polymer clay artist with decades of teaching experience, in Italy and abroad including U.S.A and Argentina. I've been selected as a teacher at the 6th International Symposium on Fimo held in Monza in 2017 by Staedtler S.p.A.. Since 2013 I am owner of youtube channel on polymer clay with more than 115.000 subscribers and over 15 millions visitors. I have written books on the subject.
Our association is a Non Profit association. Our mission is to promote and support arts, craftsmanship, and creativity as bond of unity to: improve in a inclusive atmosphere the personal well been, respecting the environment and enhancing artists skills and techniques.

We will work in the headquarters of our Association, which is located in a very particular district of Turin, which even many Turinese have not yet discovered. It is the neighborhood of artisans and artists. We will have time to walk and visit the old village and see the paintings of contemporary artists that have been made on the houses facades. You will relax walking in the small cobblestone streets of this old village.
