Whereas bamboo-growth progresses from larger to smaller pieces, in this collaborative installation we started small and got bigger!

The Bamboo Connect installation at the Tinkering Tank is the culmination of a series of fun and engaging kids and community inspired workshops held throughout March, April and May.

With the theme of ‘celebrating community at different scales’, children and their big people have worked together to create this exciting play space using bamboo collected from Mount Whitfield.
