Some things are more useful to know than others.
On the 23rd, 24th and 25th of November during Woodstone Kugelblitz: Druk in Varia we will make a Really Useful Knowledge Cookbook. A manual to be more an actor and less a consumer in your day to day affairs. The cookbook brings together recipes and instructions from the practice and theory of daily life.
This three day convivial book sprint is about exchanging knowledge on analog printing techniques, eating together, sharing of recipes for and from daily life, discussing Really Useful Knowledge, hanging out and editing and designing the publication.

A Call For Really Useful Recipes!
For this event we are looking for DIY-advice, tips and tricks, that need to be inscribed in our collective memory as part of this recipebook. We already have recipes about raising toddlers without diapers, blocking online advertising and making of hot sauce based on lactic fermentation!
All of your recipes for daily life are very welcome!
These can be submitted just as text or as already designed pages.
Please send us recipes for the book by email(info[at]varia.zone) or by post (Gouwstraat 3, 3082 BA, Rotterdam) before November 15th.
You can also submit via this Really Useful Etherpad: https://pad.vvvvvvaria.org/really_useful_knowledge
