Since the beginning of times, the human being, in his need for adaptation, has developed artifacts that function as an extension of his own body. These tools are giving him great advantage over other creatures and make it easier for him to perform a specific task.
Our world today offers a great variety of tools. Each one is unique and tailored for a specific context. At the same time it owes its characteristics to the culture and technology which was available at that moment of its creation.
In this workshop, I want to discover together with the participants, tools which are native to the surroundings of Boisbuchet or which originate from the participant’s personal context in order to realise their ideas and create objects in a most practical way.

“We become what we behold. We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us.” (Marshall McLuhan)
