Office Machines as Characters
Come and play with words and typewriters. Rachel Kessler will introduce you to a motley crew of vintage typewriters and show you how to operate these machines. We will give names and background stories to each typewriter, explore the secret world of obsolete office technology and discover how easy and fun pounding out words on these mechanical percussion instruments can be. Through surrealist writing games and the stories the typewriters themselves tell us, each student will accumulate a small pamphlet inspired by typewriters.
Grades: 6-8
Instructor: Rachel Kessler
Meets: Saturdays, January 8-29, 1-3 p.m.
Cost: $50
