RICKY BOSCARINO the Mastermind behind the psychedelic wonderland LUNA PARC Sculptural Concrete Workshop Jan 20 Saturday 10-5 Jan 21 Sunday 10-5 2018 There is a long history of non-conforming construction known as ferro-cement. Basically it refers to any type of reinforcing steel, iron or other metal combined with traditional and modified concrete(cement) Ricky Boscarino has created numerous sculptures both public and at his home Luna Parc using this method. It is also used in construction of shelters and homes to create sculpted living spaces. Ricky has been inspired by the undulating roof lines of Gaudi of Barcelona as well as the eccentric imposing facades of Hundertwasser ( of Vienna and New Zealand). In this two day workshop we will construct a sculptural electrified lamppost which will be a permanent fixture at SHAMC in Safety Harbor FL. We'll work with Ricky and the founders of SHAMC on the piece using the ferro-cement method. You can be a part of  the process from beginning to completion. The process can be difficult at times, cement, wire mesh and wire are somewhat stubborn materials so be prepared to work, have fun and be a part of this amazing experience. The result will be spectacular! We ask for $10 per person per day for the experience.
