About the Effigy Team:
The Effigy Team is responsible for the design, construction, transportation, burning, clean up, and any other needs of the Alchemy effigy. Many participants consider this to be a very important part of the event, since it is the largest art installation we create. It is (physically and symbolically) the most central of all the installations. It also holds significant value to many participants as they consider the bonfire effigy-burn ceremony on Saturday night to be the climax of Alchemy.
Our effigies have very few constraints on their artistic and structural concept. They have historically been wooden, interactive, and climbable. It's a structure that participants spend much of their time connecting to and celebrating with one another. A nexus of expression in all forms.

Have you been around the block, pitched in on some builds, and liked what you saw?
Do you just love power tools, the smell of sawdust, and sweat?
