Winterval Giant Lantern Making

Winterval, presented by Unlikely Events Yukon, is a 7-year tradition offering activities designed to get Whitehorse in the Holiday Spirit. The parade on December 5th travels from the top to the bottom of Main Street, where we there is a Tree Lighting Ceremony and an Arts Festival showcasing local artists and performers.

This year, local visual artist Helen O’Connor will be facilitating paper lantern-making workshops and will construct a large fabric lantern to be installed outside the Old Fire Hall.

Help make the giant fabric lantern at YuKonstruct on the evening of December 2nd. Everyone is welcome!

Members are still able to use the shop with the awareness that it may be busy and that the Winterval workers have rented the space and therefor have priority of the equipment.


Build a Prototype Northern Greenhouse!

Are you interested in owning a greenhouse designed for gardening in the north?
We’re looking for participants to test out a prototype greenhouse kit designed for use in northern settings, with heat sinks, automatic vents and insulated north faces.
YuKonstruct will be hosting a prototype assembly session on Saturday November 28 from 1pm to 5pm. Participants will provide feedback regarding required instructions, assembly problems and challenges and the space and equipment needed for assembly. After the assembly session, participants will have the opportunity to purchase the greenhouse kits for the cost of materials ($400-$600 depending on size)

Instructor: Bob Sharp has been offering courses on northern greenhouse design over the past 15 years and has been using greenhouses for more than 30 years in the Whitehorse area.

Cost of this prototype assembly session is free and includes all materials for an 8’x8′ greenhouse. Participants may own the green house for the cost of the materials if they wish. The cost of materials will range depending on size ($400-$600). Please register to indicate your attendance.

Maximum: 4 participants
