Every workshop lasts two weeks, first workshop from 1st to 15th July 2016, second from 16th to 30th of July. In order to make your stay as enriching as possible we have designed an itinerant plan to visit different workshops located through the country, we will program visits to shops, cultural events and meetings with artists, associations and people in the design field.

We provide creative exchanges following the footsteps of creation in its most social dimension, a mutual exchange of knowledge and experiences. Contact with local artisans, learning their techniques and experimenting with them; promote potential business activities that can be durable over time.
