At the Jewellery Museum, recreational and educational activities focused on comparison, experimentation and learning. The Jewellery Museum offers guided tours and creative workshops for all those who want to approach the art of jewellery, broaden their knowledge and unleash their creativity.
Barbara Uderzo inaugurated The blob house studio in 2010. Since 1990 she has been making contemporary jewellery, unique pieces that are the result of research and experimentation, which have been exhibited in numerous international art galleries and museums, such as La Triennale di Milano, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Mart Museum of Rovereto, The Jewellery Museum of Vicenza. Some of her works are also included in the public collections of the Silver Museum of Palazzo Pitti (Florence), Museum of Applied and Decorative Arts Palazzo Zuckermann (Padua), Museum of the City and Territory of Monsummano Terme (Pistoia), Cominelli Foundation Museum of Cisano di San Felice d/B (Brescia), Permanent Collection of the Triennale (Milan), Casabianca Museum of Malo (Vicenza), National Museum of Zurich.
At the same time, she collaborates with important goldsmith companies, designing and creating prototypes for new collections of precious jewels, and since 1999 alongside his artistic and design activity, she has also been involved in teaching and training.
The fourth workshop held by Barbara Uderzo will focus on a bracelet creation. In the Museum rooms, we will observe some precious items, from the oldest examples to some contemporary bijoux. In the laboratory, a basic goldsmith technique will be tested to shape the metal wire. Each participant will have the opportunity to create a bracelet with alternative materials chosen from those offered by the Museum or brought from home.
The third workshop held by Barbara Uderzo will focus on a pair of earrings creation. At the Museum, we will observe some precious items, from the oldest ones emerging from archaeological excavations to famous examples created by Made in Italy companies. In the laboratory, the stainless steel wire and silver will be worked to create the structure of the jewel which will be personalized and embellished with fantasy materials, small elements in semi-precious stone, sequins or natural materials. This will be the right occasion to bring shells or other small objects collected during the summer.
The second appointment focuses on the processing of stainless steel wire. At the Museum we will observe ancient fibulae on display. In the laboratory, we will create a brooch composed of a technical and essential structure that can be customized with objects and materials brought from home or provided during the workshop.
The meetings on jewellery held by Barbara Uderzo opens with the working of aluminum wire. In the halls of the Museum we will observe prehistoric ornaments on display, while in the laboratory we will create a ring to wear and always carry with us using the materials and tools provided.
