The past few days were very interesting. Giving workshops and a lecture on 3D clay printing at the ‘new’ department of product design of the university of Minho; Instituto de Design de Guimarães in Portugal.
Understanding the basics of the printer was picked up fast. and we were able to prepare clay, design and print a simple object on the first morning.
The school is partially housed in an old leather factory. The main hall and courtyard are original. New facilities were build next to it. On the top level there are the workshops for wood, metal, plastics, fabric and now digital ceramics.
A very inspiring place to be involved with design!br>
