Upcoming Workshop: Cork Jewellery Board

Cork Jewellery Board

Sunday, May 28th, 3-6pm

Jewellery Board


Build your own cork jewellery board! In this workshop, our facilitator Dasha will lead participants through the steps to build a fancy place to hang your jewellery. We’ll use planers, jointers, sanders and other hand tools to complete this project over the course of 3 hours. Participants should come dressed appropriately for using power tools; no loose clothing or dangly jewellery. This workshop is designed for beginner makers, and no experience is necessary! One jewellery board/participant.

$25 for members, $30 for non-members

Must be 18 or older to participate.

**Refunds will only be available before 48 hours before the workshop begins. After that, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to someone else. Make sure you call us and let us know! ***

VTL needs workshop facilitators

The Vancouver Tool Library is looking for workshop facilitators; people who can help empower their community with tools and skills.14918843_1450051988343857_8653994644159361641_o

We’re looking for anyone with skills in woodworking, home reno, gardening, plumbing, automotive, bike repair, textiles, etc. Experience teaching small groups of people is definitely an asset.

Have an idea for a workshop? We’ll work with you to develop the content and logistics around the workshop, and set the class size to a comfortable limit. Examples of past VTL workshops include blade sharpening, bike repair, sewing classes, introduction to woodworking, wood turning, and basic automotive.

A small honorarium is offered to our facilitators. If you’re interested, or know someone who is interested in facilitating a VTL workshop, please email
