Techniques and Materials 3. New Artisans with Pense

On May 7th, 8th, and 9th, the third in a series of workshops on material research within OLLA, Common Research Program, will take place. Led by Pense, responsible for Hangar’s construction lab, this workshop proposes an introduction to volumetric and three-dimensional construction, as well as an approach to materials (wood, iron, and basic introduction to mechanics) to learn how to handle, understand, and work with them to materialize what is projected. It is an approach to be able to design and solve problems related to construction in an easy and spontaneous way, but without falling into shoddiness. We will become familiar with the basic tools to find practical solutions to construction projects and apply the knowledge gained in construction exercises, welding, assembly, and finishes.

• Familiarization with tools and/or materials.
• Learn to make good use of workshop tools and understand that each tool has its function.
• Work planning. The importance of prior projection.
• Understand how to achieve a good finish.
• Explore the possibilities and characteristics of different materials.

The course is aimed at:
Artists from any discipline and other individuals interested in three-dimensional language without the need for prior knowledge in the field, as well as those with knowledge of the subject who want to deepen their understanding.
