Jam Session on Jan 13th in Rotorua. Barry (on the “Reject” seat, so called, because it had borer in the wood) to the right of the “Table” seat) Don (on the “Macrapapa” seat) and Anna (on the “Retro” bench).
Sen’s art residency was to create new stuff out of old wood or old furniture donated by the citizens of Rotorua.

Here are the results of this. For the Jan 13th Hot Lakes Craft Fair
we took the chairs outside and a jam session ensued courtesy of Don C (on Martin guitar), Anna on ukelele, and Barry on harmonica.
Sen’s proposal was to make a sculptural gazebo or temple form from diverse seats a bit like the June 2012 project however in response to the wood we ended up with, we made furniture (Sonja made the “Macrapapa” seat and Sen made all the other items. In the end 9 seats (benches or chairs) and one vanity were created.
