Get to know the real Tuscany with your own two hands.  Sometimes seeing is simply not enough to truly connect us to the world we live in and we yearn for the deeper understanding that only practical hands on experience can bring.  Discover the authentic soul of Tuscany through unique experiences that invite you to become an active participant and touch the heart of the region in a singularly magical way.  Step inside the lively atmosphere of active workplaces where ancient crafts and long traditions are cherished and practiced by modern day experts with great passion for their art. 

Whether you choose to test your patience and steadiness of hand with delicate gold leaf or give your wrists a workout learning to brew Tuscany’s finest coffee like a professional, you will suddenly gain personal insight into the history and skills behind some of the region’s most iconic crafts.  Tuscany’s reputation for high quality design takes on new meaning when you hold a jeweller’s tools with your own fingers and attempt to control your slightest muscle movements while creating a unique piece of jewellery for yourself. Or find yourself immersed in Tuscany’s world famous wine culture as you spend the day in the cool air of a private cellar, inhaling the spiced fruit scent of fermenting grapes and turning your hand to the technical science of blending the perfect wine.  Satisfy your hunger for knowledge with a two part exploration of the Tuscan love affair with beautiful customized pasta when you venture into the woodworking studio of a master corzetti stamp maker and learn the secrets of the symbols and designs used for centuries. Make your own stamp and then put it to use in a private pasta making class. Preparing, kneading and stamping the dough yourself connects you with Tuscany’s love for food much more intimately than just the simple act of eating could ever achieve.  Hands on experience in Tuscany takes you straight to the core of the region and gives you a rare personal link to the art and the culture of this evocative part of Italy.
