Courses

We organize cooking classes and we can help you arrange basket weaving and wool dyeing courses for small groups here at Valle Nuova.
Valle Nuova is also available for hosting activities and courses - we have a 45 m2 (480 square feet) beautiful space with beamed ceiling and wonderful light and we are surrounded by beautiful landscape, perfect for painting or photography - please contact us.

COOKING

We offer cooking classes. Learn how to cook fresh seasonal ingredients like a real Italian: we usually prepare two or three different dishes and a dessert, easy but mouth-watering recipes that will be easy to replicate at home. We can also propose made-to-measure classes for you and your family. Please enquire when booking.

BASKET WEAVING

Learn the old local weaving techniques and everything about the materials that can be woven into traditional or modern objects. Courses can be offered to beginners or expert weavers interested in specific local techniques or shapes.

WOOL DYEING AND FELTING

Sant’Angelo in Vado was famous during the Renaissance for its amazing blue fabrics, dyed with woad – isatis tinctoria. Young artisans now master the art of dyeing with plants and natural products and will be pleased to teach you their secrets.
