This Is Definitely Not A Box with the indirect Object

Years P-8: Led by the indirect Object, in this workshop students take an ordinary box as a starting point and transform its meaning.

What is a box? A gift or surprise? A delivery of something new or storage for something old? Guided by the indirect Object and using creative 3D design skills, participants work alone or in small groups to deconstruct and reimagine. There’s only one rule – the box can be anything you want, but it can’t be a box anymore.
