September 15th Workday



Wedding Cake House Work Day! Volume 5

The details:
When: 1-5pm September 15th

(Rain Date September 16th)

Where: 514 Broadway Providence

What: a variety of renovation activities will be available!

We should have some walls ready for priming if you’re a good painter...some wallpaper to scrape if you like the meditative satisfaction of turning a chaotic space into a blank slate, and LOTS AND LOTS of pulling/banging nails out of lathe and helping 
Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels with a sculptural arch made out of lathe from the house that will be stationed at the Bainbridge end of the yard. (Additional volunteer opportunities on this project Sept 8th - 18th - more on this below)
5pm on the lawn - we’ll have some food! Please RSVP so that we have a head count (! Can only come part of the day...No Problem! Want to bring a friend/awkward first date/family member?  amazing! Want to just invite them to supper on the lawn afterwards - also totally awesome! Just let us know. 

What to wear/bring/expect:  Wear old clothes (it’s really really dusty/dirty!) and shoes appropriate for a construction zone, If you have a hammer, nail pullers, or vice grips, bring em! If you have a bunch of construction experience and want to take on a specific project get ahold of us ahead of time...There are INFINITE projects. What to expect: banging, scrapping, moving stuff around, transforming things with people who you may or may not already know - high likelihood that you may make a new friend, because turns out when you smash/paint/scrape/carry heavy things in an insanely dirty zone with someone, well that’s a thing that you now have in common. Other potential activities include: Well one time we found a little secret panel, and another time a teenaged ukele band played during dinner - who knows what magic will await us this time!

Additional volunteer opportunities! 
We could really use some help getting prepped before work with Serra begins, as well as some hands to work with her as she installs. The Pro’s of this = you get to work alongside of an amazing artist on a super cool project and probably bang out nails listening to weird soundtracks, which personally we find super therapeutic and satisfying. The cons of this = there are no cons - it will just be awesome.  Message us if this is something you’re interested in. We are looking for folks September 8th-18th, whatever hours work for you (we’re usually on site 7am - 7pm). The 8th - the 12th will be prepping before the artist arrives and 13th - 18th will be dedicated to install, working directly with the artist.

We've gotten pretty bad at blogging - but are constantly putting updates on our instagram!!
