Bender Building creates a space for the participants to develop their own semi-autonomous area within the event. We will cut the poles, then create a structure large enough for about 20 to stand in.
A good team-building exercise. I see it taking place over 2 sessions 3-4 hours in duration.
I see it as a way to:
Create a good team building ethos,
Show alternative ways to create indoor spaces,
Give the particpants a chance to be deeper in the woods working with wood from the woods.
Enhance the environment with human structures rather than detract from it.
