His post has a few other examples. Great inspiration for Ephemerisle, whose website is now up at If you’re in the Bay Area and want to practice for Ephemerisle, check out Chicken John’s Camp Tipsy event, which involves a competition for the worst homebuilt boat (which floats for at least 7 minutes). It will be on August 1st.

  1. Not to brag or anything 🙂 we make cardboard boats every year at the UNCCharlotte school for fun.

    Maybe Patri could do a lecture there, and get them to do an Ephemera cardboard project one time!
