Missed a class? Loved a workshop so much that you want to relive it? As part of D.I.Y. Movie-Making, we’re filming other Ithaca Freeskool classes and making them available online for anyone who wants to participate.
Renowned local fungi expert Carl Whittaker led a Mushroom Hunt and Identification on August 30th, 2009. Enjoy the beauties of the Danby State Forest while learning about many species of edible and inedible mushrooms.
Check out photos from the class on Flickr.
We’re planning on doing some tabling in the hopes of getting more people involved in Ithaca Freeskool. So we got together at Lily/Sharon/Marina’s place to create an outreach board, science fair style. Check out the photos below…
Want to be on the Freeskool site? Send a photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a short profile – tell us what classes you’ve taught or attended, and why you participate. What does Ithaca Freeskool mean to you? Tell us, and we’ll post your profile on the site so others can get to know our community.
Also, if you have photos or videos from Freeskool classes that you don’t mind sharing, please consider emailing them to us or posting them in the Ithaca Freeskool group on Flickr:
… folks in the DIY Movie-Making class are working on a short film about Freeskool, so your contributions to the group could end up in the film – and they’ll help us to better show what we’re all doing to future Freeskoolers, and potential funders. We’ll also be using photos from the group in the display we’re setting up for tabling.
