Itinerant Workshop for the Traditional Building Techniques ‘Boulouki’

24 August - 13 September

“Reappearances” in Artsista Zagori

Boulouki and the Aristi Youth Foundation are co-organising the First Participatory Stone Masonry Workshop to take place in Aristi (west Zagori), between August 24th and September 13th, 2020. We invite all the people from Aristi, both residing in Greece and abroad, to participate. This workshop targets primarily people with origins from Aristi and the wider Zagori region, independently of their professional expertise, to build a new kalderimi (cobbled pathway) in the village, under the guidance of three experienced craftsmen (tutors).

Work

Our objective is to reconstruct a cobbled pathway (kalderimi)  60 meters long, connecting the village square to the neighbourhood (mahalla) of Ayos-Athanasios. Although, the path facilitates pedestrian movement around the settlement, today it is almost forgotten and only afew remaining  permanent inhabitants and visitors use it today.

Workshop: 24 August -13 September 2020
