Learn how to create and decorate objects with concrete by applying spectacular effects like dripping and marbled finishes

Although it’s more commonly associated with construction sites, concrete is the star of the show when it comes to raw materials at the La María Living interior design studio. Here, mother-daughter duo María Alexandra and María Camila experiment with this material and bring objects to life giving them a highly pleasing esthetic without forgoing functionality and everyday uses.

In this course, learn techniques for creating decorative objects with concrete and how to put a spectacular finish on them by playing with color, textures and all their characteristics. When you’ve finished, you’ll be able to pluck ideas from your imagination and turn them into real-life concrete objects with your hands, including everything from pitchers to unique centerpieces.

Las Marías de La María Living

Mother-daughter duo María Alexandra and María Camila–professional interior designers with a passion for handicrafts–are the founders of their own design studio and decorative objects brand La María Living. The two generations join forces and feed off each other’s creativity to bring objects to life, giving them a highly pleasing esthetic without forgoing functionality and everyday uses.

Inspired by macrotrends, they play with color, textures and artisan techniques to carefully craft their concrete products. Through this process they create their own worldview and express it through unique, timeless designs where concrete, thanks to its characteristics, is often the primary material used.
