What to expect

Take part in this plaster workshop and take home a piece of Umbrian summer: a plaster sunflower. In this 3-hour course, you will learn the ancient art of plaster making that has given shape to stuccoes that continue to decorate countless Italian palaces today.

You will be taught how to prepare the plaster-based dough and how to color the molds. You will get to try your hand at the gold leaf gilding technique and will get to use tempera paints. Your tutor will then help you choose whether to lacquer, patinate or wax the object you have created, and finally, you will be the one to extract your creation from its mold to see the results.
