About my classes & the 'poetry of handmade'

Through my classes I'd like to show the beauty of transforming a simple piece of metal into a story to wear.
It's about research and attention to every little detail: it's about the poetry of handmade
and my personal act of rebellion
against mass production.

As a passionate maker & teacher I also avoid old school teaching methods assuming all students are the same.
I remember I used to get really bored at school for we were expected to simply repeat
 and memorize the assignments, while more interaction would have been more interesting. More questioning, explaining, demonstration, connection and collaboration. More emotional involvement.

For this reason during my classes i focus firstly on participant's needs and individuality, on intuition and enjoyment
rather than following just a cold standardized academic program and approach.
 Intuition and emotions are the keywords in my teaching methods. I hope you will enjoy this journey as much as I do! - Sabrina

Students at work :D - Thank you Roberta & Ilaria!

Jewelry Making Intensive Course

Sono rimasta piacevolmente sorpresa dalla quantità di informazioni e tecniche apprese. Sabrina mi ha guidata nella creazione di un gioiello dalla A alla Z, in tutte le fasi e ogni minuto passato in laboratorio è stato di grande valore. Consiglio questa esperienza a chi è alle prime armi oppure

a chi semplicemente ha incertezze e vuole migliorare la tecnica. Grazie 💛

Wax Carving Intensive Course

I took a wax carving course with Sabrina and it was one of the best decisions I made! Not only is she talented and interesting but is also very informed about jewelry and extremely attentive to making sure I learn as much as possible in the little time that we had. Overall it was such a fun course and left me feeling so inspired to dive into new projects with wax carving with all the skills I learned! Thank you so much Sabrina :)
