March 23 – Intro to Tools Workshop (Planter boxes)

This workshop is now full. Keep an eye on our Events page for the April and May workshops.

Unfamiliar with the Vancouver Tool Library inventory and the functions of the tools? Want to learn to use those tools in a fun and safe 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 take home. Spring is just around the corner – get your garden started! Besides the push for urban gardening, our goal is for you to feel comfortable working with a variety of different tools in your own home. Facilitator Steve Fairbairn will go over safety with power tools, designing and planning your project, and the execution of your plan.

When: Saturday, March 23rd, 2013, from 11:00am-2:00pm

Where: The Tool Library, 3448 Commercial Street

Cost: $20 for VTL Members | $25 for Non-Members

What to Bring: All materials will be provided. The workshop will take place outside so wear comfortable, tighter-fitting clothing that is weather appropriate. Avoid dangly accessories for safety reasons.
