YWITT Makers Club(T4T): Wire a Lamp

Tue 28 May 2024 5:30 pm


Tue 28 May 2024 8:30 pm

This event hosted in the Yukonstruct Makespace woodshop supports a peer-led space facilitated by trans folks for trans community to learn, gather, and connect!

May’s T4T shop time welcomes folks over 18 who self identify as two spirit, trans, and gender non-conforming. If you are wondering if this space is for you, feel free to email: coordinator@yukonwitt.org

We will work together to drill a hole in a bottle, and wire it to be used as a lamp!

All experience levels are welcome!

This is a free event, but registering through Eventbrite will ensure we have enough food (PIZZA!) and materials for everyone.

We recognize there are communities who traditionally experience barriers to accessing tools, shop and training time, and we are working towards reducing those barriers. Please note, we have a portion of tickets reserved for BIPOC folks, you can access them by using Promo code: FIRSTPICK

If they have not been claimed, remaining tickets may be made available for others during the last two days of ticket sales.

Reach out to coordinator@yukonwitt.org with any questions.

1. How do I need to show up?
Everyone working in the woodshop needs to wear closed toe shoes, safety glasses, have long hair tied back, and have jewelry removed. Yukonstruct will supply safety glasses and hair ties for use in the shop

2. Is this event child friendly? No, this event is for folks 18 and older.

3. I don’t work in the trades, can I attend? This event is for folks of all skill levels, beginner to experienced, who may or may not work in the trades

4. What are the expectations of me when I take part in a YWITT or Yukonstruct program?
