Community Resources & Loose Parts

September 18, 2018

Inspiring room makeovers don’t have to cost a fortune. With community connections and an understanding of the concept of loose parts the possibilities are endless. Of course if there is some money, there are many creative ways to make your dollar go further. In this workshop we will discuss using community resources and loose parts, inexpensive room changes with big impacts, and inspirational ideas to make environments more open ended.
