Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.
There are different types of ashes. First, there is industrial ash produced by thermal plants – these are reused in construction materials or as fertiliser. Then, there is domestic ash, which comes from fireplaces, stoves, barbecues or organic waste from fires. This raw material is produced by people or restaurants and it’s considered a waste material. This manual is an extract of the project “Ashes to Ashes” that aims to give back value to ash as a material. ‘Extruded Grenue Volume’ will teach you how to use this neglected material as a production tool. The presented recipe only uses natural ingredients and the result is easily biodegradable.
