Part of KW FreeSkool’s mission is to build community resilience and capacity to do. So we’re offering an ongoing DIY Skills workshop series, which will have space for community members to teach and learn practical, hands-on skills that foster self-confidence and promote capacity to literally create the world we want to see. We’re open to proposals for new skillshare ideas, so if you do something neat and would like to learn, drop us a line.

Skillshare #6: Brand-Free Cleaning, Part One: Body Care

Date: Wednesday February 8
Time: 5:00pm-8:00pm
Location: Email for location details.

Take control over your bathroom arsenal with some natural body care ideas. We will explore common chemicals found in commercial products, their potential impacts to bodies and the environment, as well as alternatives. Participants are encouraged to bring soap/shampoo/toothpaste/other products currently being used for comparison, as well as their own ideas and experiences to contribute to a discussion. We’ll make some toothpaste and (bee-free, vegan) lip balm for everyone to take home, along with some other recipes to try. Everyone is welcome!

Skillshare #5: DIY Screenprinting

Date: Wednesday January 25
Time: 5:00pm-8:00pm
Location: Email for location details.

Learn how to silk-screen t-shirts, patches, bags or that random piece of fabric that you don’t know what to do with.  We’ll teach you everything you need to know about screen printing!  In this workshop you will learn how to build your own screen, burn an image onto a screen, as well as, tips on how to screen print without smudging your image.  Whether you’ve never touched a squeegee before or you’re a silk-screening expert, everyone is welcome!

  1. Hi – I’m sorry that I didn’t check things and missed the first sewing class. I’d like to hear about future sewing opportunities. Karen

    • hi!

      The sewing and zine skillshares were conceived as one-time workshops, but rumour has it that they were so successful that one of the facilitators will offer more opportunities in the future. We’d love to see you there.

      Karen, I’ve added you to our mailing list so you can receive announcements about upcoming classes.

      ausyeda, please send us an email at and we will add you to that same list.
