It was great to be back up at Yestermorrow Vermont last weekend teaching a group of 12 students the art of concrete counter-tops. The best class we have taught in recent years! My biggest worry all weekend was forgetting to bring socks. The weather was as beautiful as the group of students! The projects had several challenges we were able to overcome through collaborative thinking.
The experience is always powerful no matter how many times I do this. By lunch on the first day we had poured our first set of counters, and by days end had a full kitchen formed up and the math done for a weigh-out of materials Sunday morning. Students seemed to have a serious focus and motivation to learn and build. This combination allowed for a brighter side throughout the weekend, humor was crazy, we even came up with a business plan to market concrete balls of all applications…baseball fruit etc send us your money for a start-up ha ha.
