I'm Federico and, with my partner Isabella, I have an artistic workshop in Venice.
At our workshop we create our marbled paper using ancient techniques making works that are inspired by a tradition that also allows us to experiment with new ideas.
Every single sheet of our Venetian marbled paper is made with the utmost care and, because we make our products by hand, each one is unique and unrepetable.
To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app. Learn more

Where you'll be

The experience will be at Arzanart Marbled Paper Studio in Venice, a real Venetian artisan workshop.

Federico bietet einen ausgezeichneten Einstieg in die Welt der Marmortechnik auf Papier! Er und Isabella sind absolute Experten, sehr gastfreundlich und gehen auf die Wünsche ihrer Kursteilnehmer ein. Für alle, die gerne selber einem ersten Versuch im Marmorieren unternehmen möchten, können wir den Kurs sehr empfehlen.

This experience was really enjoyable and something similar wouldn’t have done at home. Federico and Isabella were both extremely friendly and were very patient teachers. In our two-hour session, I feel we really progressed and were delighted with the paper we created to take home. I would thoroughly recommend.

Great experience. We needed something on our wall in our new home and we made our own pieces of art. I loved learning about the craft and it is addictive because you want to try to make more and more. Great way to spend a morning in a real Venice neighbourhood.

Un bel atelier de découverte du papier marbré, de ses origines et de ses techniques de fabrication. Federico nous guide avec son expérience, ses conseils, et les réalisations sont au delà de nos espérances pour cette première fois ! On apprend différentes techniques en montant en complexité. Federico est très pédagogue et passionné. Isabella nous fait aussi partager son plaisir de recouvrement de livres et autres objets. Plein de jolies choses à acheter dans la boutique pour faire des souvenirs originaux (pas vus et uniques) de Venise.
