Challenge Level:  

NEW this year! Telluride Academy brings you Trash to Treasure; a D.I.Y program designed to teach young people the art of re-using and re-building, designing and creating, tinkering and inventing a slew of useful items or creative wearables constructed from recycled unwanted goods. Learn the basics of welding and sawing, molding and printing, sewing and staining in a fun atmosphere. We'll spend a part of each day in our classroom workshop dreaming up original ideas, and then hit the streets for some wacky challenges and travel to local artists' and builder workshops for one-on-one lessons learning their D.I.Y trade! For the grand finale, we'll plan and produce our very own 'Instructibles' Fair! Here, we will present our projects with easy to follow do-it-yourself steps for the audience to take home! We will even have a panel of guest judges who will score our creativity, execution, material resourcefulness, useful items and more. Join us in this break, bash, build friendly environment as we turn our Trash into Treasures!
