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

Upcoming Workshop: Intro to Tools

Intro to Tools: Folding Beach Chair
Sunday, July 17th
10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm

Our next Intro to Tools workshop will teach participants how to build their very own folding beach chair (similar to pictured).

Intro to Tools is for absolute beginners to woodworking. We assume you’ve never touched any of the tools before. You’ll learn how to use a tablesaw, chop saw, drill and other standard power tools.
As per usual, our main focus will be on the safe use of tools.

We’ll be hosting 2 separate workshops on the same day, one from 10am-12pm, and another from 2pm-4pm. Please indicate which workshop you will be participating in.
$20 for members
$25 for non-members
