How to make inflatables in 8 steps: Cut + Paste + Inflate + Dive

We made a “How to make your own inflatable with reused plastics” workshop at th  Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), East Boston, Massachussetts (EEUU). They have already worked with waste before and now they wanted to learn the tech to build a bigbubble in the next  Urban Wild the next Summer Solstice.  In 2 hours we could go through some theory thanks to the Inflatocookbook by Ant Farm and the  inflatable uide in Portuguese de Basurama Brasil and build a small bubble.

We’ve started a new version of the manual in English:

As a new motto: make your door in the direction of the wrinkles.
