Two-day Workshop Constructions with Cement

cement as a dominant material in the manufacture of utilitarian and decorative objects of industrial design



In this particular workshop, cement will be the construction material for a small-scale table lamp and a flat plate with the terrazzo technique. The   properties and proportions of the appropriate mixture, the treatment that the final object can receive, the terrazzo technique and the process of waterproofing the objects will be analyzed. We will analyze together the concept of development so that each participant  designs and creates  a handmade mold for his lamp and plate._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_ Emphasizing shape, form and size,   we will design our composition of objects to adorn our space uniformly
