The classes dealt with team work and improved the output of resources and materials in building the ovens. Mayra Gauditano is the coordinator of activities at Instituto Meio, the executive partner in the project. She says the team work improved the relationship between groups, who became more open to collaboration. Mayra also says that classes and the building of ovens took three days less than expected.
The activity was held from October 16 to 20, but students were trained to replicate and renew the knowledge, to teach other artisans and subsequently increase the project's scope. In order to materialize this knowledge, Instituto Meio is preparing an oven construction manual, with pictures of works and instructions, to be given to artisans.
The project is scheduled to complete in April 2013.
