Pentagonal Pyramid Workshop

Oct 26 Sat
2:00 - 5:00pm @ the IFF

workshop2Calling all builders and weavers! Jake Dotson will introduce you to his iterative building technique using woven bamboo skewers. In this three-hour hands-on session, you’ll learn to build pentagonal pyramid units–a section of an icosahedron–and join them together into the ‘aura frame’ (pictured above) to take home. This method of building can applied to DIY architecture, so we welcome those interested in hands-on experimentation at all scales. Beginning and advanced crafters are welcome. This is an all ages event, but is oriented towards adults, meaning:  kids who are comfortable working independently in a group of adults are most welcome.

$15 door donation includes hand-dyed sticks, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
