Material to Maker Matchmaking

10-11:30 Saturday 29 September @ Roundhouse Community Centre

A “speed dating” session for Vancouver makers to meet gardeners with plantings and green waste that could be up-purposed for creative use.

Are you a maker that could help in a garden and/or up-cycle another’s greenwaste? Do you have a garden that produces materials you think might be useful and can give away? Meet others with similar interests and build our city’s fibre shed for creative production!

HAVE YOU GOT ANY OF THESE?
For dyes: dahlias, marigolds, dark hollyhocks, coreopsis, pansies, tansy, goldenrod…
For weaving: yucca, ivy, day lily, New Zealand flax, fruit tree suckers, willows, bamboo, hazelnut…

Makers: feel free to bring a small sample of your work to help show what you do

Gardeners: feel free to bring photos of your garden, and a list of what you have growing and when it is usually finished in the garden.

To get the most of this event, bring a pen and notebook cards with contact info to hand out. We may attempt to organize individuals by location in city, but ‘dates’ will only be 2-5 minutes in length, so be prepared to speak succinctly about what you grow or make.
