Gore Design Co. has scheduled four glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) training workshops for 2008, each with a capacity of 16.
Participants will learn how to handcraft concrete countertops and sinks that weigh 30 percent to 75 percent less than comparable wet-cast pieces, require no rebar, vibration, slurry-coating or waterpolishing and can be demolded in as little as 24 hours.
Two other training programs are currently offered. The first, and most popular, is the four-day Advanced GFRC Workshop, which covers mold construction, GFRC mixing and application, and eco-friendly sealing methods. The second class is the two-day Express Workshop, aimed at busy concrete artisans who are only interested in learning about the mixing and application of GFRC.
