From sculpture to its impression
“Collect, draw, assemble, then print” are the main gestures proposed, one after the other, in each workshop. Starting with a drawing to make a good observation, to the imprint of a finished sculpture to set it in motion at the end of the workshop. An invitation to create using different materials, techniques and formats. A sculpture that becomes both a tool and a gestural experience.
