A community event from 9 am to 6 pm in Coiner Park
Bring the kids to this fun and creative event to tie dye the white bedsheets that will become the walls of the Bohemia Mining Days Kids Zone. Experienced adult supervision and all supplies provided. Bring along a white item of your own to tie dye or dye a pillowcase to take home. An event for all ages to enjoy!
Bohemia Mining Days has partnered with the Oregon Institute for a Better Way to create a 7,000 square foot Kids Zone this year in "Bohemia City" designed to provide multiple thresholds of experience to entice the child mind of all ages from Birth to Beyond!
The first threshold of experience begins with a large checkered path leading directly to an entrance through two living trees. A facade wall that is14 ft wide and 8 ft tall textured to resemble the bark of an ancient tree stump including a burl base with a 4 1/2 foot rabbit hole entrance. This entrance is fabricated from wire, plasters and paints and is connected to a tunnel hole 6 feet long. The checkered path leads the participant inside then curves up and over the walls and ceiling of the tunnel ending near the exit shrinking in view.
The second threshold of experience begins in the transition from the tunnel into a 10x20 structure with a 7 ft ceiling constructed to “shrink” down to a 4 1/2 foot keyhole. Inside, the participant sees the ceiling and walls narrowing towards the keyhole exit. Participants will experience a view of upside-down and topsy turvy turning super tiny as they slip out the key hole.
The third threshold of experience takes place upon exiting the key hole to look back and see the facade wall of a quaint cottage house.
The fourth threshold of visual experience is the prismatic colors of the tie dyes tapestry walls creating a brilliant boarder that participants create at this fun community tie dye event.
