Learn from the Makers!
You are working on a project and need some help troubleshooting a problem? You did an orientation but you are not sure anymore how to set up an equipment? You are looking for tips in the wood shop or you are not sure how to plan your woodworking project? You want to brainstorm techniques and ideas? You want to validate the feasibility of your project at the makerspace?
Ask a YuKonstruct mentor at makespace!
Two evenings a week, volunteers are in the space to help you with your project. Check out the calendar to see who is here and what expertise is covered today!
Depending on the day, we focus on a specific area of expertise and/or an equipment.
Repair Café - Drop In
Repair Café Whitehorse has been helping fix broken stuff with monthly drop-in events at Yukonstruct since 2014. Broken toaster, vacuum cleaner or other small home appliance? Bring it in and see if it is fixable using soldering irons, multimeters and other tools. This easy introduction to electronics and small home appliance repair is a useful evening of DIY learning that you can literally take home.
About the team: Glenn Piwowar has been a registered Professional Engineer in the Yukon for more than 20 years and is a born-again proponent of the Maker’s 3Rs: “Repair, Re-purpose, Re-create”.
Michelle Clusiau is always making things; you will frequently find her trying new projects on the laser cutter and sharing her expertise with other Yukonstruct members.
This event is open to both Yukonstruct members and the public. We ask that people who aren't members of Yukonstruct donate $5 to cover the cost of materials.
