Over the course of several months, Common(s)Lab will facilitate a series of DIY (or rather, Do-It-Together) neighbourhood building workshops with the assistance of a skilled craftsman, Veiko from Estonia. Together with participants, we will salvage wood and other materials from in and around the neighbourhood to construct tables, chairs, and planter boxes, and more – and learn about simple construction techniques, materials, sustainable surface treatment, and also, the background and causes of bulky waste and the issues connected to it.
Saturday, February 10 at 11 AM – 4 PM
10.2.2018 | DIY Furniture Building Workshop #1
The first workshop will be a basic introduction to construction techniques and we’ll learn how to construct a simple object of furniture…please bring any scrap material you have at home or find on the streets. We’ll have warm soup to keep us energised and some music later in the afternoon to relax after all our hard work :-)
To celebrate the conclusion of the workshop series we plan to set-up a shared neighbourhood meal in Schillerpromenade during summer, activating it as a place of community sharing and conviviality. We look forward to your participation!
Please sign up via info [at] commonslab [dot] de, so we can plan the event better – thanks! The workshops are going to be children-friendly.
