Introduction to composite structures / adults

The world of composites is extremely vast and diverse, and they are no longer found only in the fancy bodywork of expensive sports cars. Rather, we encounter composite structures in our everyday lives: you might already own a bicycle made of these materials, they’re used extensively in planes, and you might even stand on surfaces made of composite materials whenever you take a shower.

The workshop is intended for designers, architects, engineers, artists, makers and all those who are curious about the advantages and disadvantages of composites and their use. In order to better understand these intriguing materials, the lecture will be followed by a practical demonstration: as we’ll get our hands dirty, you might not want to wear your favourite clothing. We will also be glad to help you develop concrete ideas for composite products.
