Play with form in this hands-on week of exploration. In the mornings, join inventor, educator, and writer Kurt Przybilla and through a variety of hands-on explorations you will become familiar with geometric relationships and have a deeper understanding of the synergetic way nature creates both her beautiful patterns and impressive strength. You’ll build 3-dimensional domes, the primary structural system — tetrahedrons, octahedrons, icosahedrons and space framing – with things like bamboo, toothpicks and marshmallows. In the afternoon you’ll discover the secrets of clay building with clay artist Katherine Tholl, as you pinch, coil, and form unique creations, then learn to glaze and fire. You’ll take home lots of amazing projects in this exciting week!
