Hosted by SHoP, Saturday School is a mini autonomous learning and making site located in the belly of John Preus’ The Beast currently on view until August 3, 2014.
This week’s topic: Junk Drawer Workshop
A junk drawer is a space for random things, things that don’t really have a place. They defy standard forms of categorization and organization – yet by designating a space as a junk drawer, it’s assigned a category of randomness. Maybe your junk drawer started as a miscellaneous series in your collection of kitchenware, or maybe it formed on its own, simply by having accumulated odds & ends over time.
Eric Bartholomew will explore these ideas in this writing workshop.
Bring an item from your junk drawer! Each participant will get to write, discuss and share stories associated with their items.
The Beast program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.
