Jerez, ES #311 Leathercraft Classes
24/08/2019: curso con docente invitado: Texturas Caseras en Cuero con Pepe Pereira:
Cada año a final de curso en la Escola de Artes e Oficios de Vigo, en la que imparto la especialidad de Artesanía en Coiro, realizamos una exposición para la que los alumnos trabajan bajo una idea, en el año 2014 la idea era “Novos Produtos” y desde nuestro taller trabajamos desde el enfoque “nuevos productos, viejos conocidos”, la idea sobre la que estuvimos experimentando era trabajar el cuero con elementos con los que nos encontramos a nuestro alrededor día a día. Jugamos con tenedores, lijas, cucharas, antideslizante…….
Y a partir de ese momento y aumentando nuestros conocimientos con lo que nuestros amigos iban aportando fuimos ampliando una parte de la programación didáctica bajo el nombre de “Texturas Caseras”.
El planteamiento que damos a esta técnica es de experimentación y juego ya que no es una técnica dogmatica y permite innovar y desarrollar nuevos métodos.
 
duración: 10-14h
plazas: 15 alumnos max.
coste: 10€ por persona, a pagar con la inscripción y no reintegrable.
