Better Build workshop two

November 21, 2014

We’re back! Building on the success of our first workshop at Edendale Farm in October, we’ll be making smaller decorative projects again. So yes, there will be sandpaper and paint to play with…

But this time we’ll also be crowd building ‘wicking’ planter boxes from old shipping pallets. We’re giving two large ones to the the Scouts Association for use outside the Wattle Glen Scout Hall.

With twenty people in the booked out workshop we definitely need more power tools on hand. So we asked the team at Diamond Valley Mitre Ten if they could sponsor us with a few extra drills and sanders and…they said yes! Nice.

The workshop’s vegetarian lunchtime feast will be supplied by the good folk at Pepper’s Paddock General Store. They’re just 100 metres from the Scout Hall…so local it’s ridiculous.

Last but not least, we’ll have extra volunteer facilitators on the day: there’s sustainable builder Paul Pitrone, local permaculture trainer Drew Barr and creative maker Kirk Slywa.

All of us are gifting our time to help our novice makers experience the joy of making things by hand.
