Andrew Mount and Omine Ivatt

Auckland, NZ - Outdoor educators, Lecturer and Crafters

Workshop title: $10 Teepee - A space to Imagine

This workshop will provide teachers with the skills to easily make their own Teepees. We will recycle old billboard signs into new Teepee skins that you will take home ready to find some bamboo poles and get building with your little learners. These Teepees are a great way to engage learners of all ages into construction of shelters and are sure to attract a small tribe.
