Reclaimed materials provide so many opportunities for play and early childhood development. This interactive workshop introduces the theory of loose parts and provides hands-on examples of how open-ended materials can be used to support early childhood learning objectives.
We believe reclaimed materials are great for inspiring innovation and problem-solving, precisely because they take some creativity just to figure how to use them. Our Maker-focused workshops provide tips on maximizing reclaimed materials in your classroom or makerspace.
Bolster your art instruction with the environmental and artistic benefits of reclaimed materials. In this workshop we discuss historical and contemporary examples of artists reusing, and share how to encourage spontaneity and material exploration of beautiful reclaimed materials.
