Design Month at AMT continues with Regis Lemberthe of A&Re Design (http://aetredesign.com). This 2 part workshop focuses on designing and building objects out of concrete. To enroll in this workshop, sign up to the first session on 4/19 (The other session on the calendar is for information only).
Concrete is most often thought of when talking about architecture or urban space, but it really isn’t the first material that pops into mind when you think about domestic objects or jewelry. And yet, what this workshop offers is precisely this: for participants to come and design their own projects to be made of concrete, and to discover what textures and colours it can take.
One of the great characteristics of this materials is that it is so fine, it will take the texture, sometimes even the colour of any material you cast it in. This is a great opportunity to upcycle packaging materials and turn them into moulds. Participants are therefore asked to bring as many containers as possible - all we need is that they are waterproof. Juice bricks, plastic bottles, that’s all perfect.
This is a 2 sessions workshop - we will work on our models on the first day and, once concrete has dried, the final steps will consist of releasing the pieces, polishing and coating them. Old clothes advised on both sessions.
