Winter semester

DDuring canapa in forma project we explored the properties of hemp, its history, the various ways to grow it and to process it. Through various forms of experimentation on how to give it a shape, we have created artefacts of various kinds and uses. We pressed it into forms, reinforced it with natural resins, coupled it with wood, but also only stitched it. Among the objects we have realised: there is an innovative sled, a container for conserving fruits and vegetables, a vase for plants that provides nutrients to make them grow, a game to bring children closer to hemp, a lamp inspired by the production of hemp rope. In other objects, hemp was used for its property of being resistance but also to enhance its aesthetic characteristics so far underestimated.
