Crafting Wood

100% TREE (2022)

Programme wood workshop ‘100% TREE’: Chicken sheds made from trees.
14-20 August 2022 Amsterdam

PART 1: MODEL MAKING AND PROTOTYPING

The first part will be organized in the AHK Makerspace. Students work in international groups of 4 and 8 students. In the first two days, we make mock-ups (1:0) and prototypes of joints (1:1). One or two times a day we organize meetings to present, reflect and discuss. At the end of the second day, we decide which (combination of) prototypes we will build in groups of 8 students. Each group selects the needed parts of the trees and the tools for their final object.
