Calling All Do-ers and Makers!!
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
At LOL on August 19th from 1-9pm, near the San Francisco Bakery: Offer
a brief (30-60minute) 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.
If you or anyone you know would like to participate and help build our
local community, please complete the attached survey
