Bamboo Connect by Co-Lab - Workshop for 10-12 year olds

Sun 24 Mar

These children’s workshops are about Energy & Environment, relating bamboo with other materials through interactive games and sculpture in the lead up to this year’s Cairns Children’s Festival.

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 like constructing and exploring, these workshops are for you!
