Course focus: how to learn everything about wood!
Borma Wachs courses deal with every single content at 360 °, to provide usable professionalism and knowledge with solid foundations.

Here are some examples:
Conservative restoration: you will learn the fundamentals of professional wood restoration, starting with consolidation, disinfestation and reconstruction. The fields of application are innumerable and the course can be completed with training on aesthetic restoration, for personal and professional interest.
Wood gilding: it can be traditional and dogmatic, according to the ancient canons of cabinet makers, or free and slender. Our training courses on wood gilding teach both procedures, using the two different product lines for modern and traditional gilding!
Color courses: this is a very important training course, as it teaches how to achieve the desired, visible end result of wooden artifacts. You learn very useful notions of colorimetry and tinting systems. Color management for wood is particularly important and is one of the focuses of Borma, which designs and manufactures traditional oil-based and water-based dyes, enamels and finishes in a wide range of colors!

Focus on sustainability
Borma Academy is not only the place where familiar woodworking techniques are disseminated, it is also an environment in which the culture of love for wood and for the planet can be breathed and transmitted.
Our wood solutions aim to obtain products that are good for wood, for people and for the environment. Thanks to an internal research and development department, thanks to our knowledge of essences, and thanks to a ten-year tradition of passion and professionalism, each product is designed and manufactured keeping in mind our history and everyone's future.
Sustainability means making really good choices today in order to be free to choose tomorrow too. The blind consumption of resources can give a result today, but it cannot give it tomorrow, when raw materials and the environment will no longer be able to support us.
This is why Borma has chosen the path of transparency and minimum environmental impact: raw materials and renewable and sustainable energy sources to produce without waste, clear instructions and yield calculators to work without waste.
