Upcoming programs

July 16

Mega Origami with Gabrielle Oshiro

Origami has been around for over 1000 years. Let’s look at origami under a different light. The art of paper folding was once considered a child’s activity, but now it attracts mathematicians, designers, engineers and artists all over the world.  It only requires paper but the possibilities are endless.

In this workshop participants will learn to fold oversized modular origami then use the pieces to build a large scale installation. All ages welcome!

 

August 6

Heron's Fountain with Megan Gafford

Heron's Fountain is a water fountain that works without pumps, it seems miraculous -- like the mythological perpetual motion machine.  It was invented in ancient Greece by Heron of Alexandria. The fountain has three chambers full of water or air, and it's powered by gravity.  One would expect gravity to prevent water from flowing up, however in this hands on workshop participants will learn how to harness gravity to push water upwards and make their own fountain with the provided materials. All ages welcome!

 

 


What is Make/Shift Monday? 

Make/Shift Monday is a program that encourages participants to engage with RedLine in a unique and inspiring way. Make/Shift, as the name implies, is very open-ended and each bi-weekly happening is crafted with the creative spirit in mind. The nature of programming is always thoughtful, sometimes a little wacky, and somewhat improvisatory.

Make/Shift is an opportunity for local creatives and extended members of the RedLine community to share practical skills, intellectual interests, or secret superpowers with a receptive group of peers and arts enthusiasts.

There is an endless variety of “types” of  things that could go on during a Make/Shift Monday. Past programs have included participatory concerts that involve music, poetry, improvisation, and dance where the distinctions between composer, performer, and audience member are dissolved; collaborative art activities and creative testimonials; one-of-a-kind art workshops; and many more!
