Tool Making for a Precarious Future

11 June 2017


Venue: Open School East, 50 Athelstan Rd, Margate CT9 2BH

Organiser: Open School East

Open School East is a space for artistic learning and production that is experimental, versatile and highly collaborative. A group of the Associates from 2017 will facilitate this workshop.

As part of an ongoing programme of public events Open School East’s ‘Radical Planners’ will facilitate a practical workshop making tools for living in a precarious future.

We will share skills and collaboratively produce improvised functional objects. Using wood, electric, magic and muddy crafts we will resourcefully construct a tool kit for a fictional forecast of our shared ecological hopes and anxieties. We will actively explore the application of materials in troublesome times.

Please join us to ponder the future we might be heading towards and the skills/tools we might need for self sufficiency and well-being.

This workshop is open to all ages. Please get in touch if you have any questions. Materials will be provided but please bring rocks, wood, plastic, wires, spells, cloth etc along if you wish.
