Thank you @VICE for coming to film a little sliver of our world.
…For following us to camp on a rainy saturday afternoon to trudge through the mud shooting outhouses & treehouse… and talking about making stuff that makes us happy.
thank you @APPLE for shipping these nice folks in from the UK to CA- and for asking us to share our story about hoping for something better.

We believe that if we stop listening to the haters being scared of what people think/do/say… and we start listening to that little ‘i wish’ voice— then we can really make anything we want, and the only limits we have are those that we put on ourselves. maybe having a creative identity crisis is ok. why do we have to pick a lane? heres to going into a new year with new possibilities. a new year of being less afraid and of making more things.


an excerpt:

Join us on Saturday, October 27th from 1-2:15 at the Apple Michigan Avenue store, for an inspiration hour on how the power of a sketch to come to life in so many ways (in the case of Camp treehouse, a playhouse to scaled model toy, to a book, to tiniest venue for entertaining)

Workshop Highlights :
HEAR: about how the tiny cabins of camp (like the treehouse) all started as sketches
CREATE: in a mini class “how to sketch on an iPad Pro & Apple Pencil”
LEARN: the true behind-the-scenes story of how ‘house in a tree’ came to be
MAKE: your own treehouse design on the ‘Procreate’
PLAY: with the 3 foot scale models of the treehouse
WATCH: the animated promo short for the story
SEE: to the book projected on a wall almost as big as the real tree
GET: to take home an actual piece of the tree as a lucky ‘inspiration talisman’

* take-home talismans while supplies last
*first 35 guests get the iPad to work on while at workshop
