How to Build a Blanket Fort: A Party/Workshop with Crazy Dames
Sun, 23 October 2016, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
HOW TO BUILD A BLANKET FORT is a 'workshop meets party' that invites participants to work together to transform the Unionville Library into an epic version of a quintessential childhood space!
These temporary childlike forts will be built on a gigantic-scale using blankets, cardboard and other household materials.This creates a playful and whimsical space to engage in dialogue and creation, in which the convergences of arts based inquiry and city building can be realized. The surrounding environment where the workshop is held will be used as supports/incorporated into the structure. While re-engaging with our child-like perspectives through this experience, we will work together problem solving aesthetic, function and spatial preferences and choices.
Blankets will be provided- just bring yourselves! ALL AGES!
