In jewellery, almost all materials find use today. Nevertheless, it is quite rare to see interesting work in gold nowadays. Stefano Marchetti uses it because he likes it and thinks there’s still a lot to do and a lot to invent with it.
His workshop is about making a piece by using various traditional ways with a new approach. Already little bits of fine gold will open your eyes about the spectrum of opportunities, and certain qualities, which can be expressed only in precious metal. In the class, you will achieve interesting objects and different alloys, by practising procedures that are less and less investigated. Stefano´s credo: As a goldsmith, it makes sense to explore gold to find out why it is so fascinating to work with it. 

Language: English and Italian.
Duration: Monday to Thursday, 9 am - 6 pm. 40 course hours.
