this December we will be leading the first Portland, Oregon earthaware workshop for the second graders at the Buckman School. we are gathering organic and reuse materials with the parents of the kids, getting volunteer transport for the materials to the school, then spending four days together with 27 kids to design then build three play structures based upon fort and igloo forms. next semester the school will add the resulting forms to the annual fundraising auction.
we have gathered interns and students from local universities to help in the teaching and guiding of our young design-builders. we endeavor to leave the kids with learnings of earth impact from daily decisions, team building and play. check back in mid December for more and images of the event.
