Workshop with Dario Cestaro

Wondering how 3D books and spatial objects are born?

We share moments from the creative workshops held at the Printing Company Druka house, where we learned to create pop-up solutions together with the artist Dario Cestaro.

The two-day workshop provided not only a lot of knowledge but also a pleasant experience!
