equipment

We will need material for doing the course.
 There are two important things to keep in mind:

1. choose what let you work easy and fast, ans that its not heavy or complicate to wash (we will probably work outside)
2. choose material to experiment with (take your time in investigating material shop or any kind of shop, also things you find in the street or at home, or at work, or in the garden... dont forget that materials are very important tools for posibilities and creativity)

WARNING!
some materials are expensive, before buying anything take a look if you have something at home that you can use or that you can recycle and dont buy big amounts of material if you dont know if you will use it. 

This is a provisional list, I will complete it in the next week and I will tell you what things will be more important to bring.


DRAWING MATERIAL (the one you like and here some suggestions)

-notebook (why not to build your own book, you can choose the type of paper and find a tutorial to do the bookbinding your self ), paper (I use mostly white or recycled paper, bring diferent qualities and types that you find), cartón, transparent plastic, transparent paper, ploting paper

-pencil, pen, brush (brushes diferent sizes, shapes, hairs), graphite, markers, china marker (this is a pencil that you can use for painting on any material, its very intense, the black and the white china markers are usefool tools for me), another nice tool is the brush with water tank.(you just need to fill out with water and your brush is always wet, I also fill it out with inkcolor watersoluble, I use them for this project and they were very usefull "marrymeinthelake")

-ink color (watersoluble and no watersoluble, if you want to mix colors or to have them separate), watercolor (the water color boxes are very helpfull and even if they are expensive you can always travel with them and they last a lot for their small size), color pencils, any other color paint you like, for printing leaves or other things we can use black oil color or black color for printing linoleo watersoluble (it needs time to dry out but you can clean with water)

-scalpel, cutter, ruler, scissors, tape, glue,


EXPLORER MATERIAL (if you dont find the things or they are expensive you can build them your self)

-to clasify: labels, stickers, rope, stapler, thread, elastic gum, glass jar, small plastic boxes, clasification box, measuring tape, pins or needles, small plastic bags,  (we can use mermelade glass, perfume samples or plastic taps like containers)

-to work on microscope, glass slide (we could also use plastic, we need to cut the plastic 75mmx25mm)

-to watch and catch: magnifying glass, camara, binoculars,

-to documentate: books to share, any science book with information about nature, medicine, animals, plants, maps or diagrams. Any book you like to share with us. Its also helpfull a simple dictionary.

-to travell, it will be great that you find a hard suitcase or a box where you organized the material and you can move withouth reorganizing every time. I would love to have some suitcase like this


SURVIVING MATERIAL

- cap, umbrella (probably for the sun), blanket, plaster and confortable clothes that also could get dirty and a big big machete :)
