The workshop has officialy started! We have been digging for 4 days, marking the plan dimensions with the mason, Edward and Adamu.
Before that we had to remove the eletric pole because the cables were crossing the site.
On tuesday 5 Dr.Mantey from the Art Department of Knust University in Kumasi visited the village and discussed with us about the main ideas and the way to connect our background to the local mindset of traditional ghanaian society.
We are going to use stones with concrete mortars, with some reinforcement bars. On thursday we went to the quarry to check prices and sizes of stones. In the meantime, Kwame, the welder is finishing the metal formworks, cutting the last angles and square pipes, so that we can soon make rammed wall sample to find out the correct mix.
Many volunteers are coming soon. Amelie, Luca, Alexsander and Claire are going to help us from the very beginning of this construction, bringing more ideas and carrying loads!
