Registered association occupied with educational workshops in the field of blacksmithing and metal design.
The “Europäische Zentrum für Zeitgemässe Metallgestaltung in Kolbermoor e.V.” is an association with about 25 professional artist blacksmiths, semiprofessional blacksmiths, teachers in Metal Construction Techniques, historic researchers in metal, marketing professionals and media-profis.
The “Europäische Zentrum für Zeitgemässe Metallgestaltung in Kolbermoor e.V.” is a registered association in Kolbermoor that offers workshops for apprentices, students, young people with immigrant background. Kolbermoor is perfectly situated for the workshops in the area of Munich, Rosenheim and Salzburg, near the big city colleges and the alpine cultural sites. The workshops are placed in the city-builders yard. Master-blacksmiths and drawing teachers (Members of the organization) are heads of these workshops. Young metal workers learn the today’s modern metal techniques. The shape and design is thereby conveyed too little. Current market studies show, that the design of articles in future gains in more importance. The “Europäische Zentrum für Zeitgemässe Metallgestaltung in Kolbermoor e.V.” trains young artist blacksmith and metal-designers, to reach this future market goal. The metal historians in the organization serve to explore historical materials and manufacturing methods (f. e. damaskus steel, old alpine grave character in Bavaria/Austria, old metalwork in architecture). Many former mines, old forges, factories and workshops are situated in the environment. Public relations, books and social-media are in the hands of the media professionals in the organization.
In the future, the content of the courses and workshops should be made available to the partners by these media professionals. They want to develop apps and internet media for international dissemination.
