Workshop "Modular skins", with Heather Alcoceba (Workshop / Children)
The Botín Center is covered by a modular skin composed of ceramic plates and a metal base on which they are anchored. Starting from this idea, Heather Alcoceba teaches Modular Skins, a workshop in which to generate textile pieces from the concept of leather used in architecture. With architectural techniques we will transform the two-dimensional into three-dimensional and then take it to the body through different scales (an accessory, a dress ...) enjoying, as she says, an arquicostura workshop.
