Join us for a design challenge that will exercise both your artistic and engineering skills! Participants will be tasked with creating unique miniature chairs out of a variety of exciting materials like sculpture wire, wooden shapes, cardboard, and chenille stems.
At the end of our timed building session we’ll step back and admire all of the unique chair forms created, and share our observations on their constructions.
