Buchstabengärtner – ComeOnKids Festival

“Buchstabengärtner” (lit. character gardeners) is a workshop realised during the Come On Kids Festival at the Free University of Bolzano (IT) together with my colleague Pia Stiegler. It was designed to teach the children about the structure of font characters, while showing them, that “waste materials” like egg cartons can be brought back to life. During the workshop the children worked individually as well as in groups. The final result of the workshop is a miniature garden, that will grow a cress character.
