Heat-retaining tile stove workshop at Studio Zona in Glen Huon, Tasmania, from 6-10 April 2018.
Hungarian master craftsman Peter Korompai is giving a hands-on workshop on heat-retaining tile stove building based on European traditions. Extreme cold conditions in Scandinavia and Central Europe contributed to the development of highly efficient heating system an example of which is the heat-retaining tile stove.
Inventions of new ceramic and refractory materials and construction methods have made these stoves highly efficient, burning a minimal amount of firewood, and storing the heat for an extended period of time. As aesthetic objects, heat-retaining tile stoves can be designed to suit any style, taste, or home. Moreover, they seamlessly fall in line with broader concerns of ‘eco’ building and a more sustainable life style. In five days, the participants will be introduced to the design principles of stove building compliant with current building regulations, and gain knowledge of materials, and construction methods. Also, they will produce their own ceramic tiles, and take part in the hands-on construction of a heat-retaining tile stove. Further content in the workshop will include discussions on the stove’s history, efficiency, building standards and other issues, not to mention Studio Zona’s famous lunches and fruit cakes. The workshop will suit designers, architects, alternative builders, students, home builders and anyone who is generally concerned with highly efficient and sustainable heating systems.
