Crafty Get Togethers
Shrugging off mass market consumerism for a more hands-on approach to things, we’re seeing a surge of small do-it-yourself workshops being hosted in people’s homes. 160 Workshops is an Ottowa-based collective hosted by friends and roommates Darryl and Beth. The two open up their home every so often for a day of DIY workshops put on by local crafters, artists, and chefs, and anyone is welcome to participate. Costs are covered by a $5 suggested donation and the day is capped off with a silent auction and tea party.
