An afternoon to #makeyourcity: Potulná alej, a better place to live in by creating DIY urban mobile carts with reused material, that enhances the city with urban furniture, gardens, and greenery.
We will start the workshop by showcasing the design of the carts and the tools available.
You will have a chance to design, cut, drill, plant, and even sense some of the greenery of these carts. You will learn about trees in the city, sensors and smart cities, composting and urban gardening, and basics of design of urban furniture.
We create together with the participants 3 types of mobile carts, that will serve the city in different ways. After the Maker Faire, these carts with join the larger urban intervention in a prominent square in Prague and will be inhabited by citizens.
The workshop has four carts, participants of the workshop will build 3 out of 4:
