What we’ll do

I will guide you to the discovery of wrought iron and I will teach you this art as my grandfather taught it to me… And this time you will make a real wrought iron leaf with your own hands! HOW DOES IT WORK? Once you have defined the model you want to create, we can start to heat the iron. When the temperature is right for modeling it –don’t worry, there is no risk of burning or hurting yourself!-…
