蘭嶼工作坊第二天 (第一天/First Day English)
特別感謝廖俊彥 (  與木.生活.家 )及佳欣 Toys for Taiwan!

由於組織團隊前往蘭嶼舉辦工作坊需要極度繁瑣的前置作業及大量經費支出,所以我們每次成行都希望能盡量多舉辦幾場高品質的活動。這趟長達一周的旅程我們每天都為了課程準備工作到深夜,時間幾乎全被工作佔滿,鮮少有休閒娛樂時間,嚮光協會也對放下自身工作瑣事前來參與的熱血大朋友們充滿感激。


第二天的工作坊中木工老師為孩子們設計了相當特別的課程。由於需要大量鋸切及釘敲作業,木作工作坊比起我們以往所舉辦的任何課程活動都要來得困難耗時且充滿挑戰。但過程中我們也發現唯一的方法便是堅持到底,並且永不低估孩子們的能力。只要確保課程設計得當並能持續引起孩子們的興趣,孩子們便決不會輕言放棄!

課程一開始老師罕見地將最後成品保密,也成功引發孩子們濃厚的好奇心。直到黃昏時分,家長們都來到孩子身邊陪伴一同作業時,由孩子們親手雕刻精巧花紋的木燈籠才在落日餘暉中一盞一盞緩緩現身。木工老師在連續兩天的課程中始終保持微笑並對我們及每位參與的學員都展現高度耐心。對他而言,能夠與人分享技能本身便是種喜悅!

有些孩子我們很幸運地從最早在蘭嶼舉辦工作坊以來反覆相遇,迄今已經第三次來參加工作坊-也有許多在朗島舉辦活動後才第一次前來參加的新面孔。在我們返回青年旅社的途中,剛好看見一名孩子已經在自家陽台點上剛做好的木燈籠!我們也真心希望能有資源在島上持續舉辦更多工作坊,讓更多孩子有機會學習新技能。

Day two of workshops in Lanyu thanks to our PingTung woodcraft Teacher Liao ChunIan 
 與木.生活.家 and Jia-Xin’s Toys for Taiwan! Read about day one here!

Since the sheer logistics of getting a solid team and the cost to Lanyu continues to be daunting, we try to pack as many quality activities as we can for the community. Bright Side Projects is so grateful for the passionate people that take time off work and projects to make this weeklong journey that is mostly all work and very little leisure time as our meetings and preparation often wrap up late into the night.

Our second day focused on the kids and our Teacher had something very special in mind. The woodcraft workshop proved to be a huge challenge with the sawing the hammering. The skill and time involved was on a more difficult level than any of our previous activities in the past few years but what we learned was to stick with it and never underestimate children. If you provide an activity that is well crafted and keeps up the engagement with them, kids will not quit!

 

It’s very rare that a teacher did not show kids beforehand the end product of their creation but we found this led to great anticipation. By the end of a long day, with many parents becoming Big Friends alongside kids, the wooden lanterns with intricate designs kids sawed in themselves emerged in the Lanyu twilight. Our teacher ended his second straight day of workshops with a smile on his face and endless patience for us and all his students. He found such joy in being able to share this skill with others!

Some of the kids we’ve been fortunate enough to see for the third time since we had our workshops here in the beginning – there were also many new faces as the event was hosted in LanDao. On our way back to our hostel, we soon came across a lantern created by a kid lighting up the patio of their home! We hope to have support for more workshops so all can be empowered to learn new skills.
