At this workshop we will be taking a glance to the characteristics of this construction material and on the construction techniques used all over the planet. We deal with many tricks and maybe some additives to enhance its characteristics. We will explain all the steps: How to get it, to rate it, to mix it, to use it and to decorate it.
We will be also dealing wit lots of constructive elements and their fabrication with clay: floor, walls, ceilings; seats, ovens and even bathtubs. It is possible to do all of that with clay in a creative way.
Of course, we will be touching and experimenting this material at the closest, since we will be doing all the steps in practice: from rating the material to mixing it and applying it. We will be working on pending projects at the valley, may it be a little artistic house, a sculpture, an oven or any other thing. Following the weekend workshop we will offer the possibility of staying the whole week getting deeper into what we learned and doing some different experiences.
