Carbon Capture in Tile

JULY 4 TO 8

$275 + GST

6:00 PM TO 9:00 PM

We often forget how rich in history our city is; from Heritage Homes to Indigenous culture there is always more that we can learn. Friend of the Lyceum and wonderful wordsmith Caroline Adderson paid us a visit a few years ago with her work Vancouver Vanishes and it resonated so much that we never quite forgot the sentiment. As part of this camp, we want to speak to the carbon capture potential in renovating heritage buildings by upgrading to energy efficient systems, while keeping the strong shell intact. On the first day we’ll walk the neighbourhood looking for homes that capture our attention in some way, before immortalizing them in mosaic tile. Christianne will guide us through sketching out our designs onto a paving stone base, before slowly building, piece by piece until we have something truly spectacular. Each tile will serve as a reminder to reuse and repurpose until our world has reaped the benefits.
