Building Lanterns for Winterval

YuKonstruct was pleased to participate in Unlikely Events Yukon‘s Winterval parade again this year.

The theme for this year’s event was “Festival of Lights”. Our makerspace volunteers designed and built 3 large lanterns complete with jack frost and his friends.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped cut lumber, paint the pieces, attach the screens, model for the winter fairies, assemble the lanterns and pull the carts through the snowy streets!

Hackerspace Build Night

Come join this community project where we create a hackerspace at YuKonstruct!

We have an extra room being used as storage right now and we want to turn it into something awesome! We have the desktop CNC router, cutting machines, soldering equipment, electronics and maybe more that can all go in there; we will see what fits!

Tunes will be blasting, tea and coffee can be made, clothes may get dirty. Join in the making of your hackerspace!

See the discussion on the project over on the forum.

12 Days to End Violence Against Women Community Project

YuKonstruct partnered with Splintered Craft, the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Les EssentiElles and White Ribbon Yukon to make a project for the 12 Days to End Violence Against Women campaign. Over several days we built a large sculpture with the help of many volunteers.

The sculpture depicts a woman walking forward, with the support of her community represented by glowing hands lifting her up.
YuKonstruct member Chris Lloyd designed the sculpture in SketchUP before it was brought to life in the real world.
The 7-foot-tall woman was constructed by wrapping copper wire around a welded skeleton. The 50 supporting community arms were made by “casting” volunteers’ arms with clear packing tape.
