Jump on Zoom and start designing an indoor ‘earthworld’ made out of a messy, squishy, and natural material called cob; a building material made here in Melbourne. The cob will be sent to participants in the mail before the workshop, so they will have everything they need to get messy and creative at home!
The workshop will explore how humans have used this sustainable material to build throughout history. Then participants will make a model of the Giant Gippsland Earthworm (and meet some real earthworms). The group will then work together to design some structures for the indoor ‘earthworld’ of their dreams. Participants’ designs will be brought to life in the final workshops during the April school holidays at ArtPlay.
Join this event to co-create with children on an arts sustainability project.
