Crafting in the workshops of Nou&Herkauw is a lot of fun, but sometimes it also generates a lot of waste. Mostly paper and cardboard. So why not re-use this waste and create something new out of it?
PaperWorks is a mobile workshop, or call it a LAB, that focuses on recycling, designing, and fabricating. We start the cycle with collecting waste paper, schred it to little particles and process it to special paper maché paste. This paste is used as source material for our specially designed paper maché 3D printers called PaperBots. In the meantime we design on a simple 3D object like a vase, a box, or a simple building block, with simple 3D/CAD design software. When the design is ready, its time to print!
