Studio Aphorisma’s professional weaving atelier is located on a hill near Florence, in a former farmhouse. It represents a reference and cultural exchange point for people boasting different experiences in the textile and art sectors. During certain periods throughout the year, it turns into an open lab where courses are offered that focus on teaching weaving techniques, fabric design and art subjects.
The courses are based on three main aspects: creativity, manual skills and research. Starting from a common theme proposed by us every year, the participants can develop their design and fabric samples, by gaining their inspiration from the most typical features of the Tuscan landscape and the local culture
