Jewelery school in Florence

Since 1997 Maestro Dari’s Jewelry School Florence continues the tradition of the old artistic Florentine workshops and gives a unique experience based on the union of the Arts. The theoretical teaching starts from the observation of the real forms, the training of the geometrical design and the studies of the golden section and ends with the practical reproduction of architectonical and anatomic elements in wax. A fundamental component of the teaching concerns the experience on antique artistic techniques, which are reproprosed by the Maestro in those oeuvres where one can read the history of goldsmithing in various themes, starting from the Etruscans until Contemporary Art.  As one sees in his creations, where reality, architecture and nature suggest, the individual creativity and the space for fantasy will be given to the single students: the guidance of the Maestro in working the precious metals and stones will get them closer to the secrets of this handicraft, and they will measure themselves with their own taste and capacities in order to arrive autonomously to the final result of a sculpted jewel in wax.  Exactly like in the renaissance Florentine workshops it is important that the student receives from the Maestro and from the observation of the jewels those necessary stimuli in order to elaborate the intimate and personal thoughts on art. The duration of the course depends on the level of the student’s basic preparation and his/her level of maturation which will be proposed in the making of artistic objects.
