June 2012 ; June 2013

In June last year, the walls were being painted, some plugs being fitted. Tables made their way in, as well as some high tech and much low tech. One year on, it is time to reflect on the journey so far.

The plants have grown and are now hiding the fish, giving them, hopefully, all the privacy they need to make new babies… something we’ll need to follow up on.

The year has gone by to the rhythm of regular drawing classes (now being documented on the  Isadora’s Workshop’s blog) and crazy week-long workshop for kids of all ages (from book-making to exploring weeds, creepy crawlies and learning to make knots, we’re moving to stop-motion this summer).

Being at the Blue House also means that I had some “scientist-in-residence” calls of duty from the 3 to 5 year-olds in the Blue House International School below (asking questions ranging from tadpoles, to space, water, bending metal and others in between).

Finally, we’ve also started the Tinkering Sundays with the help of the community (Blue House parents and artists).

Let’s hope the year to come brings as much joy to all who step into l’Observatoire as it has this year. And if you’d like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you. Just leave a message below, or better still, come and visit.
