Working collaboratively, builder, Dan Bergeron, along with partner, Blue Tile Lounge and with the help of Converse CONS Skate Ambassador, Kenny Anderson during the daylong workshop. Check the video of what happened, as well as click through to see a gallery.

Dan Bergeron demonstrated some of the many installments he’d done across Toronto. Look out for his shit.

Frankenstein itself! For such a crazy idea (design based off similar architecture as the ROM) the thing really turned out sick. Unique, skateable, sharp. You can find it at Dufferin Grove for the rest of eternity.

At the end of the day, was a great event with great people. Kids were stoked, fed, and raring to skate the Frankenbox. Thanks again to Converse Cons and everyone involved! Until next time.
