Avete una passione per il ricamo? Oppure siete dei principianti, ma volete imparare? Allora l’iniziativa promossa dall’Università della Terza Età a Magione (PG), dal 19 Gennaioal 28 Giugno 2012, è quello che fa per voi.

La scelta di Magione non è casuale: nell’Ottocento tra le zone del Trasimeno il ricamo ebbe una notevole espansione, grazie all’impegno di molte signore della buona società che aprirono scuole ed istituirono corsi, così da permettere un’imprenditoria redditizia. Spesso le commissioni provenivano da famiglie reali!

Le lezioni si terranno tutti i giovedì pomeriggio, dalle 15 alle 17, presso la sala dell’ex-cinema Carpine, e saranno aperte a tutti.

Il “professore” sarà la ricamatrice Maria Grazia Sedini. Esperta in molte tecniche del ricamo, inizialmente si concentrerà sul Punto Caterina dei Medici (detto anche Punto Madama), originario dell’Umbria, non troppo difficile ed accessibile a tutti, ma gradevole alla vista e soddisfacente anche per chi è a digiuno di questa arte.

Nel corso delle lezioni sarà possibile, per chi lo desidera, cimentarsi anche con il cucito creativo: dal patchwork alla realizzazione di piccoli oggetti.

Per le iscrizioni ci si può rivolgere alla sede dell’Unitre in piazza Matteotti a Magione o chiamare direttamente la responsabile del corso allo 075 8472784.

Do you have a passion for the embroidery? Or you are a beginner, but want to learn? Then the initiative promoted by the University of the Third Age in Magione (PG), from January 19th to June 28th, 2012, is up your alley.

The choice of Magione is not random: in the nineteenth century between the areas of Trasimeno lake the embroidery had expanded considerably, thanks to the efforts of many society ladies who opened schools and established courses, to allow profitable entrepreneurship. Often the fees came from royal families!

The lessons will be held every Thursday afternoon, from 15:00 to 17:00, at the hall of the former Carpine cinema, and will be open to all.

The “professor” is the embroiderer Maria Grazia Sedini. Experienced in many techniques of embroidery, will initially focus on the Punto Caterina dei Medici (also known as Punto Madama), a native of Umbria, not too difficult and accessible to everyone, but pleasing to the eye and satisfying for who is no good with this art.

During the lessons will be possible to, for those who wish, try also with creative sewing: from patchwork to the creation of small objects.

For registration you can contact the headquarters of the Unitre in Piazza Matteotti in Magione, or contact the course leader by phone: +39 075 8472784.
