Organised by RogLab, performed by Aereform


All places at the workshop are already taken. Applications are now closed. All those who missed application, will have opportunity to talk about solid composite projects with Sašo Knez and Janez Cestnik.

On Thursday, October 10, from 5 pm to 8 pm, we invite you to a lecture with workshop An Introduction to Composite Structures 2, where you will get to know the advantages and disadvantages of the carbon and other composites, how you can make use of them in your line of work and fabricate your own holder made of glass and carbon fibre. The workshop will be performed by Jure Pocrnjič and Janez Cestnik from the company Aereform. Sašo Knez will also join us at the workshop.

The world of composites is extremely vast and diverse. It is not only about a fancy engine cover on a sports car. We encounter composite structure in our everyday lives: when a bicycle passes us by, when we look up in the air and we spot a plane, and also at home, when we stand on them while taking a shower.

The lecture and the workshop are aimed at designers, architects, engineers, artists, makers and all those who are curious about the advantages and disadvantages of composites and about their use. In order to better understand the matter, the lecture will be followed by a practical part, where we won't only risk getting our hands dirty – therefore we recommend you wear clothes you don't care much about. With the newly acquired knowledge, we will fabricate a glass and carbon fibre reinforced beam structure.
After the workshop you will get an insight on composites, on what they are and how you can make use of them in your line of work. We will also be glad to help you develop concrete ideas for composite products.
