Throughout the week the children will explore many different building techniques and materials alongside artist and designer Vanya Lambrecht Ward. Who is planning for this to be one big discovery of building, shaping, folding, modeling, constructing, and deconstructing of all sorts of structures, which will have endless possibilities and surprising outcomes! We will explore a great selection of materials making the smallest to the largest constructions we can. We will play with and explore the 3 dimensional world in  many different ways as we can. This summer camp is for anyone who likes building, using their imagination, and trying things out!

Vanya has worked in the arts over the last two decades; From Theatre and television to Arts and Architecture.
