Summer school “the magnificent world of the upcycled materials” for 7 to 12-year-olds.
TransfoLAB BCN proposes a different way to spend the summer, filled with materials and making. Every week we will work with a different material and will learn the different techniques of transformation so that we can produce different products. During the learning process the focus will be on creative recycling and reuse. Every Tuesday we will visit MaterFad: Barcelona’s Center for Materials, part of Disseny Hub, so that we can investigate the new applications of the chosen material. Every Thursday we will visit an artist/maker in their workshop. At the end of each week we will have completed an object to take home and we will celebrate with a small exhibition. We will work in a small group so that we can ensure the maximum attention and safety.
