All Hands Active
Come out and join us for our very first workshop in Downtown Ann Arbor! The awesome folks at All Hands Active are letting us use their space for workshops. The first of which will be making string art.
Need ideas? There are heaps of boards on Pinterest dedicated to string art, check them out for inspiration.
- Hammer (We can pass around hammers if you don’t have one, but if you can bring your own it’ll help us keep people from waiting.)
- Pre-cut wood (if you have a size preference)* Note: We’ll have 1″ x 12″ x 12″ cuts pine planks available for $2 or $3, depending on what’s available at the store.
- Something To Trace (We’ll have print outs of the state of Michigan, but if you have something specific in mind, please bring a print out of the basic image outline or word as you wish it to be reproduced in string.)
A2YDIY (stands for Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Do It Yourself) is a group for people to get together with other people for a fun creative outlet, to learn a new skill, meet new people, and get involved in the community.
The term DIY has evolved to become associated with a wide range of skills. It is a global movement that celebrates creation and the folks that love to create by building, modifying, crafting, repairing, re-purposing, constructing or deconstructing something.
Our events can be divided into 5 primary types of categories…
Special Events for a Specific Skill or Project (aka Classes, Workshops, Demonstrations)
“Creative Casual” (aka Show & Tell)
Who should join? Anyone with an interest in learning new things or with in showing others a skill or project they’ve already mastered. You know what they say right? The only way to to truly know is to teach it.
