School of Many Questions

All classes are pay what you can. Please do pay what you are able - this money helps us keep the lights on, but it also supports all the political education we do for free.

Social Memory Clock


This is a day-and-a-half long clock making class where students will paint, collage, do some light woodworking, and chat about the past through a collective storytelling exercise (in candlelight).  Prior to the first evening, participants will be asked to select what we call a 'social-memory' - an historical event from the past that they were not present for but has meaning to them. In class, students will be transported into their social memory with the help of the group and then translate their recollection into colors, shapes, and imagery for their clock. The ultimate aim? To spend a reflective but leisurely day creating a unique and functional timekeeper that is also a document of history - one that is able to remind us of our ongoing commitment to our memories and their commitment to us.

Nine Acts (of education)

This is a one-day class in which we will gather around a table and participate in the creation of nine experimental learning exercises meant to challenge and critique what we are generally socialized to understand as "school". We will use a revolving set of exercises that have been developed or are in-development by us and our collaborators in the spirit of making the whole world a school. These exercises can be used in a formal classroom setting but also with your book club, on lunch break with your co-workers
, while you wait for the bus with your friend, during a union meeting, or at a curious dinner party you organize.

The Caning Circle

This is a two-day class where we will sit in a circle, have discussions, play games and, if we get to it, weave the seat of a stool together using the traditional methods in natural strand cane (“rattan peel”). Students will leave with the stool and the ability to repair hand-woven cane seats, or weave new ones of their own design.
