April 14 – Intro to Tools (Planter boxes)

This workshop is now full. Keep an eye on our Events page for future workshops.

This workshop is back by popular demand this month!

Spring has finally sprung; it’s nearly time to transplant those seedlings you’ve been lovingly tending to for the past couple weeks. This is the perfect opportunity to become familiar with some of the tools in the Vancouver Tool Library inventory in an inclusive, fun environment. See the principles of physics at work in our Intro to Tools Workshop (and never question the real world applicability of high school classes again).

After this workshop, participants will leave with the confidence to name and use basic tools necessary for everyday projects AND a planter box to adorn a balcony, deck, or backyard. Facilitator Brent Firkser will go over safety with power tools, designing and planning a project, and the execution of said plan.
