HUNGER GAMES Survival Workshop

Standard

Matt Gabriel, outdoorsman specialist, will lead a workshop for 15 lucky tributes on Friday, August 15th from 10 am to Noon.  It’s a tie-in, of course, to the fantastic Hunger Games BUT don’t believe for a moment that what you will learn in the workshop couldn’t save your life (or someone else’s) someday.  Register for the workshop online.. click to link.book3

SteamJunk goes SteamPunk….

Standard

steamAmazing! With the help of Nettie Berkeley of the Teen Artists Coalition, Altoids tins became golden treasure keepers, safety goggles became Super Steampunk Goggles and the most amazing creations just happened.  This is not to mention the buzz of conversation about Cosplay, anime/manga, heavy metal music and other tidbits of teen life.  What a great group! All that ‘stuff’ that gets ditched because it is broken, out of date or unused can have a Second Life….spray paint, glue, weird imagination…it all works.  I love Nettie’s ‘philosophy of gathering’: Nothing should be wasted. Not a bad mantra.  This was a good one.  Hope more of you can sign on next time.steampunk 2
