Bamboo Connect by Co-Lab - Workshops for Children

Tue 16 Apr - Wed 17 Apr

These two-day school holiday workshops are about exploring tension and compression whilst playing and building with bamboo - in preparation for the Cairns Children’s Festival where children will be constructing a giant installation out of bamboo.

Bamboo is an ancient construction material and is still used today for all sorts of structures. The bamboo used in Bamboo Connect comes from stands that were originally planted by Chinese market gardeners on the slopes of Mt Whitfield for use as garden trellises.

They are a popular feature of the Red Arrow walking track but need regular maintenance to keep from spreading too far into native bushland.

If you enjoy construction toys, these workshops are for you!
