RUN FOR YOUR LITE | A collaborative installationSouth End of the Provencher Bridge Winnipeg, Manitoba
Maker Culture, Crafts — Collective Creation, Other
A human sized hamster wheel that powers a forge? This crazy idea was born out of a conversation between the owners of two custom design build shops; Cloverdale Forge, who utilizes traditional blacksmithing techniques to hand forge iron and steel and Wood Anchor, a company dedicated to giving new life to locally harvested trees and reclaimed wood. When makers connect the wildest ideas become brilliant realities. Come run the distance and ‘Run for Your Lite.’ Your human power will be pumping up the bellows of the blacksmith forges so they can make the anvil ring.
