Bringing mortar Art
When talking about concrete you most likely think of architecture or urban space. It really isn’t the first material that pops into your head when talking about domestic objects or jewellery, is it?
However, this workshop offers precisely that: for you guys to come and design your own decorative and domestic projects made entirely of concrete.
During the workshop you’ll be learning a little something about how to work with this material. Working on a small scale you’ll discover the many possibilities offered by it in terms of colour and texture. Learn to build your own moulds and get a custom object off the cast. If you are more about result than process, there will be an option to follow pre-made patterns and create one of the products shown on the photos.
After the introduction to concrete and getting to know all the possibilities of it, you will get your head into building your own model!
After your amazing model gets a chance to dry you will work on your final creation: polishing, adding, colouring etc
