Transition Olympia is sponsoring RE-SKILLING events at the Love Our Local (LOL) Fest as well as the Olympia Village Building Convergence (OlyVBC). We seek local folks who have a skill they’d be willing to share.
At LOL on August 19th from 1-9pm, near the San Francisco Bakery: Offer a brief (30-60 minute) presentation one or more times during the day. This could also be a prelude to a more extensive workshop during the VBC or later in the year as part of a Re-Skilling Fair.
At VBC the week of August 19th-25th: Offer a more in-depth workshop, where folks get hands-on practice learning the skill. These workshops would need to be free-of-charge, in the spirit of VBC.
Re-Skilling Fair: We are in the beginning stages of planning a more extensive program for later in the year. More to come…
Skills run the gamut, from drop-spindle wool spinning, to cob construction, to darning socks, weaving baskets, making a mason-bee house, filtering water, buying and using hand tools, making soap, etc… anything that contributes to our resilience and interdependence, as individuals and as a community.
Look forward to hearing from you!!
