WHAT'S ASSOCIATION WORKCAMP PARQUET ?


WORKCAMP PARQUET, z.s. is an international registered association. The main activity is focused on the promotion and transmission of the tradition of parquet craft worldwide. The aim of the project is to transfer knowledge in the craft, motivate the craft and break down prejudices across borders. The unified language for communication is craft.

WHAT'S PROJECT WORKCAMP PARQUET ?


Professional craftsmanship, fun and education. So we can summarize the weekly project, which is focused not only on parqueters. Any artisan who works with wood can take part. Language skills are not necessary, but craft skills are. The project is implemented every year in a different country. The participants co-create a functional wooden floor with their work and the resulting parquets remain accessible to the public and for future generations.
