Conservatory of Craft founder Brandon Gore of Gore Design Co. and Hard Goods launched a Kickstarter campaign that was fully funded in March for DIY concrete tile kits. Now you can purchase your own mold through their partner company the Concrete Design School.
If you’re from the Tempe area you may already be familiar with the amazing school that teaches you how to work with GFRC or Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
According to Brandon, response has been very good. They have artisans posting their tile photos on Instagram.
Gradually 12 different designs will be released. I’m pretty excited to see the new patterns and how they might interplay with one another.
The Kickstarter campaign offered Ultra High-Performance Concrete Mix that allowed you to create your 9×9 tiles for about one third the price of retail.
I didn’t see any pigments specifically listed when I was visiting the online store but that could be due to not wanting to move a lot of inventory to their new home soon to be location in northwest Arkansas.
I think I need to add the school to my bucket list. What do you think?
