This workshop is one part of a series of free family art-making workshops inspired by water, every Saturday this October at the Seaport.
In this edition, make your own simple bio-sand filter in a bottle and learn about the importance of water in our global world. Kids of all ages and their families will experiment with different kinds of sand and water in order to learn how water is filtered through the earth's layers in the wild. You will be able to construct and test your own miniature model. This workshop is designed to help us understand the low tech, high concept thinking behind the water filters provided around the world by the non-profit organization OHorizons, a coalition of technical, social, and commercial innovators focused on providing clean drinking water for the developing world. This week OHorizons will be at our workshop to demonstrate how a large water filter works and share stories about water issues around the world.
Kids and families are also invited to explore the labyrinth of touchable-art at our on-site art installation, Teresa Diehl: Breathing Waters. During the month of October we will explore the relationship of water to our city, through family art-making workshops inspired by this art piece and the Seaport.
