In addition to the residency, we offer the possibility of participating in various scheduled workshops. 


Often described as one of the oldest forms of photography, cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan coloured print, referred to as a ‘blue-print’.

In this workshop led by Giuliana Conte, you will learn about the process of making a cyanotype ‘blue-print’, whilst developing your own original and unique prints using everyday household items, pressed flowers and leaves, or photographs and illustrations


This workshop will cover a wide range of practical skills and knowledge relating to the restoration of furniture, paintings or wooden objects. You’ll have the opportunity to work on your own project, which may include decorated objects, gilded or polished antiques. The course includes: 

  • A theoretical part that will introduce you to the world of restoration, including the basic concepts and techniques. 
  • A practical part, in which you’ll learn and apply the techniques to carry out the restoration of your work. 

The tutor, Vittorio Scappaticcio, graduated from the Scuola di Restauro at Rome and has been a Senior Restorer and Conservator for over 20 years, working on paintings, decorative furniture and wooden artefacts for different institutions.


We offer different workshops depending on the time of year and the print-making technique you would like to learn or explore. Some of the workshops we’ve done in the past are:
