Thanks to a series of laboratory activities mixed with theoretical activities, the participants will acquire knowledge about the realisation of objects from objects otherwise under-utilized or trashed (paper, plastic, ceramics, buttons etc.)
The workshop is divided in 5 different theoretical and practical laboratories.
Each laboratory will permit to produce an object thanks to the work of the group and of the creativity of each participant.
The approach of each laboratory is based on the principle by Bruno Munari called “Action game”: it is a pedagogic- didactic methodology able to break down language barriers and based on a creative use of the body language.
