YuKonstruct at the Reuse & Repair Fair

Zero Waste Yukon‘s inaugural Reuse & Repair Fair was a huge success on Saturday June 3, 2017! The fair included live music, workshops, artists selling work created from reused and re-purposed materials, and food trucks serving food in a zero waste manner. YuKonstruct was pleased to bring our Repair Cafe to this great event.

Volunteers Glenn and Garnet assisted fair attendees with repairs ranging from diagnosing a faulty toaster cord to fixing an electric guitar.

If you have broken things in need of fixing, be sure to check our events calendar for upcoming Repair Cafes (usually the 4th Friday of the month).


Pallet Deconstruction Workshop

These days, there are hundreds of websites providing interesting project ideas made from pallet wood. But taking apart a pallet is not always an easy task – and can leave you with more scraps than materials.

In this workshop, learn different methods of effectively taking apart a pallet. Come away with a stack of pallet materials for your next project! Bring along a pair of work gloves if you have them.

About the Instructor: While no expert woodworker, Amy has deconstructed her share of pallets and is enthusiastic about using pallets to make all sorts of things: from bookshelves to tables to dartboard cabinets.

Max: 6 participants     Members $15  |  Non-members $20
