Concrete Draping — Sculpting with Concrete and Fabric

21 May 2023


Field Collapse's 5th Public Program: A workshop with Jarupatcha Achavasmit and Ake Atthasumpunna

Savinee Buranasilapin and Tom Dannecker of thingsmatter invite two industrial designers Jarupatcha Achavasmit (a textile artist and co-founder of Ausara Surface) and Ake Atthasumpunna (a furniture designer and design director of Mahasamut Furniture) to lead a workshop to extend this theme, turning observers into active makers. Participants will learn to mix cement to a proper consistency for soaking into fabric, which will then be draped and formed over various found and improvised objects, to create unique sculptures that read simultaneously as both solid and ephemeral.

➡️ Limited to 20 participants

**Please dress comfortably and be ready to be messy.
**Workshop participants are encouraged to bring old materials and objects to be used as a base/formwork to create their art.
**Sculptures will need approximately 1-3 days to cure.
**Participants should plan to pick up their work, between 25-28 May 2023.
