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.
Eggshell Ceramics explores how to convert calcareous food waste like eggshells into an innovative biomaterial. Participants are encouraged to utilize commonly found objects as moulds, to create their own simple objects made from eggshells, which are “designed to disappear.” This exercise concentrates on guiding you through one recipe and is open to experimentation and further development.
This manual is created by Midushi Kochhar; a designer and material researcher who works between Amsterdam and New Delhi. With the mindset of solving problems she gives priority to materials over objects. She has co-founded Makers on the Move which is an innovative educational program based on hyper-local recycling systems.
