Archaeological Park in Užice, 2020

Emilija Nikolić, architect of the Archaeological Institute of Belgrade, invited me to join the Archaeological Park project – we held workshops on clay plasters and renders, clay ceilings and floors.

Dive into the project:

In addition to my restoration work, I frequently engage in experimental projects, employing a wide range of techniques such as rammed earth construction, adobe building, wattle-and-daub methods, clay plasters and renders, and even cob ovens and thatched roofs. Additionally, I play an active role in organising workshops and training sessions, most of which are held at our association’s central hub located in Mošorin, Serbia.
