Sears think[box] spotlight
“Reading Wetu” is a project created with the first grade class of Ms. Erin Shakour at Orchard STEM School located on Cleveland's westside during the fall 2014 semester. The reading Wetu occupies an 8' x 8' x 8' area in the corner of her classroom and houses her small library of children's books. The structure is built entirely from 3/4" thick plywood and yarn, and fabricated with the CNC router at Sears think[box]. This project is part of a series of works that Marcus Brathwaite has created in collaboration with Progressive Arts Alliance, a local arts organization whose focus is to provide STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) programming to the Cleveland Public School District.
