Deep and rural Andalusia meets Bangkok's youth to rethink esparto craftsmanship and celebrate traditions.
The strangers submerged students into a material exploration with the objective of recovering one of the main productive traditions in a state of extinction: the Esparto craftsmanship. The scope of the project was to materialize an ongoing reflection and speculation on regenerative strategies for decayed productive communities. Students completed a series of actions to understand and generate a critical position towards the context, connecting with with the community, craftsmen, material techniques and history.
