Extinction Rebellion London
XR 4 Day Skeleton Making Factory with Alistair Lambert
Wednesday 31st July – Sat 3rd August // 9am – 5pm
We aim to build three skeletons for future actions with the XR Skeletons Rebellion. For this we are looking for a core team of makers able to commit at least 3-4 days. We will be testing and developing new techniques.
Ticket registration is free, but we ask you to bring materials to share. There will be a ‘drop in ‘how to’ workshop on Thursday evening and Saturday morning: Timings tbc.
We welcome skilled makers but no experience is necessary.
The seek to refine making techniques to share. Skeletons need to be lightweight, robust, demountable, transportable, repairable and of course striking!
We will be studying nature and paying our respects. This is not trick or treat.
If you have an idea for a skeleton you would like to build let us know in advance if possible. We aim to construct skeletons to take part in a Marine Extinction March, but all ideas welcome.
This is part of a series of non-violent creative actions to raise awareness and cause disruption around the issues of climate change.
We aim to up-cycle and reuse materials as much as possible.
In particular, if you can, please bring
– soft piping
– bubble wrap
– white string, wires
– gaffa tape
– pva glue
We will be honing our techniques through the process of the workshops, with the aim of creating a digital resource of videos for people to share skills. We will be starting simple and building our techniques as the bones demand.
Thank you for joining the Rebellion!
