The magic of the engraved design

The best masters of the refined, sought-after, subtle art of burin engraving, in which the working technique and the taste for the ornament combine admirably, are to be found in Tuscany. The school re-evaluates this technique, which can also be used with excellent results in contemporary creations.
LAO offers two types of course:

 

  • Engraving on flat metal sheets with decorative and figurative subjects. With this technique it is possible to produce dies for etchings, decorative panels, boxes and frames. The school offers courses of different lengths and levels.
  • Engraving on jewellery. This surprising technique allows you to make engravings on jewellery with almost sculptural results, giving the objects great added value. Only students who have already attended at least a basic engraving course can enrol in this one.

 

ll the courses include just Workshop lessons and exercises: they are open to all and can be combined with other courses on different subjects (see Academic Courses).

There follows a summary description of the courses.
