WORKSHOP: Make a Pour-over Stool with Alex Schofield; Sat., 8/26, 1-5 p.m.


Join designer and material researcher Alex Schofield and make your own stool from post-drip coffee grounds using resin-casting techniques.

Alex will share his research into the cultural, economic, physical, and environmental footprint of coffee consumption on a global scale, highlighting how he and others are engaging digital fabrication technologies to repurpose our "waste" material.

Then, enjoy a coffee-themed snack, and learn how to make your own stool using wooden dowels and a mixture of resin and coffee grounds. Gain perspective on the potential of coffee as a building material and walk away with your very own 'pour-over stool' for use at home, work, or a coffee drinking spot of your choice. 

Enjoy a cup and sit on it, too!

Date: Saturday, August 26th

Time: 1-5 p.m. 

A $115 non-refundable workshop fee includes all equipment and materials, plus light refreshments, coffee for those who want it, and a snack.
