First Festival of Ecological Seminars at Skiaxtro Eco Farm!
Marathopoli Messinia- 21, 22 and 23 of July 2019
At a place where the imagination, the contact with the nature and the love for creation are endless…
At a lively place created with affection, able to host creative activities as a way out through art and handmade designs
At the Skiaxtro eco farm in Marathopoli we organize a 3 day colorful fiesta of art. The participants will use recycled or useless materials to design their own masterpieces which can then use as a decoration to their homes or as fanciful presents. Most importantly they will acquire a new skill for designing beautiful objects from materials that would normally be thrown away. A unique experience to remember from this summer!
Because creativity and recycling are not just useful activities but a means of life.
– Imprinting nature
– Become a Gaudi for a day
– Weaving the moments
The aim of this seminar is to express our creative anxieties dealing with each ornament as a sculpture.
Our estate or a quick walk in nature will inspire us to create ornaments that will not only represent our own imprint but the nature’s imprint also
Earth and water mix with our “valuable” findings for a very personal and unique result.
Become a Gaudi for a day…
Thousands of years ago, the mosaic art was born out of the human need to decorate their surroundings. We often come across stunning mosaic art from various periods of time past and various civilizations. Somewhere in that journey we find the imaginatively personal style of Gaudi, who getting inspired from plants and animals he designed his own language of architecture. One of the characteristics of this architecture is the pioneering technique of the “trencadis”, the unique mosaics covering the structural forms of his buildings.
Except the promotion of the architecture that respects the nature, Antony Gaudi was a pioneer in ecological construction . This is why he developed a technique that allowed the recycling and re-use of materials.
The aim of this seminar is to use ecological mosaics using broken tiles, cells, stones, buttons and glasses giving them the opportunity for a second life. Leaving the seminar you will get your your own creation to give another color to your vacations and not only!
Weaving the moments…
