As part of the program of events of the Florence Jewellery Week, Le Arti Orafe is organizing two workshops related to the creative process with Xavier Monclús and Philip Sajet.
LAO, Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School in Florence, has organized an intensive 7-day event devoted to the jewellery world and the complex relationships between artistic research, crafts and design. The event also aims to focus on the cultural aspects of identity/diversity, which is one of the main topics of the debate in recent years.

Xavier Monclús, “Objet trouvé”
Intuitive, lively and playful work and a process of formal thinking creating jewellery out of daily life images and small objects in plastic, wood or metal.

Philip Sajet, “Please, no diamonds today”.
“A ring always brings a stone. Why not another thing? Let us think about it together!"

Duration: from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm - Tot. 24 hours
Deadline for booking: 15 of May, 2015
Participation fees: € 300,00 (VAT included for each workshop)
