School of Many Questions

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.

This is a day-and-a-half long frame making class where students will design, cut, and paint their own wooden frames. We will do some light woodworking and chat about the people in our lives or from the past that are meaningful to us. Students will learn how to use the bandsaw, the jigsaw, the trim router, and wooden files. Paints and such will be provided to decorate the frames too ;)
