the ateliers of venice - puppets L



Venice has an old tradition of crafts. Wouldn’t it be nice for your and your children to take a privileged sneak peak at some of the most traditional and representative ateliers of Venice ?

Follow our expert guide as she takes you to 3 fascinating ateliers that will leave you and your children amazed…

Welcome to the last of the great gold leaf makers in Venice. This very small workshop is still like it was some 100 years ago, and the techniques have not changed one bit. See how the man beats the gold pieces into very thin leaves and how the women carefully shape and place them in special books.

Another fascinating atelier on the list is a puppet workshops. Here, the owner has developed a new technique using saw dust, and has created thousands of puppets, of different shapes and sizes. You will even be able to manipulate a puppet.

The third workshop is an old textile factory. The wooden machines used here are still the same ones used a century ago. Here, they make some of the best textiles used for places of great importance (the Kremlin, various palaces and state buildings etc.), using the same technique of the 19th century. A fascinating visit that will make unforgettable memories.

(The order of the visits might change and one atelier could be replaced by another should the atelier be closed for an unexpected reason)
