The ancient art of engraving, which had its greatest splendor and diffusion in Venice, will have no more secrets! For those who want a unique experience in the ancient world of craftsmanship, I organize individual courses (one or at most two people) to explain and put into practice the basic techniques of engraving. Participants will thus have the opportunity to create a real art print made by them (on their original idea or drawing) and take it home. An experience that they will certainly not forget - in fact, they can hang it in their home! The course includes etching with the drypoint technique on Plexiglas or drypoint on zinc. I will follow you in the choice of subjects, in the preparation of the drawings and during all the processing phases, from the initial study to the processing of the plate up to the final prints. Reservations are accepted by people from the same family or relatives

* A traveler said: "Worth Every Penny!!!!! Our guide met us at the ship, he was fantasic! He took us to our awaiting Water Taxi which was a VERY nice heated and enclosed boat with a great driver. We went directly to St. Mark's Square where we were shown our meeting place and given great advice on things to see, etc in our free time. After an hour or so of free time we met back at our spot with another guide who took us to the Palace and the Basilica. Monica was FULL of information and her knowledge was extensive!! After 2 hours with her we were given more free time before our guide met us back at our meeting spot where we then went in same water taxi back to the ship. Our guide even walked us all the way back to the ship since it was a little tricky. Venice was a little tricky actually so the tour was absolutely perfect helping us get around. Guides also gave us fantastic information about how to spend our following day as well. GREAT|TOUR!!!!"
