Event description

Description

Glasgow Tool Library

Each month, Glasgow Tool Library will lead workshops that introduce you to different carpentry tools to use in various woodcraft techniques. Workshops are themed according to what objects you make, from toys to outdoor furniture. Whilst learning how to make different objects, participants will be encouraged to think about the workmanship, time, energy and materials it takes to make things. By using reclaimed and sustainable materials, each participant will come away with a more considered understanding of the types of products they consume, and how to make the most out of what is usually considered waste.

These workshops are kindly supported by the Climate Challenge Fund.

FEB 16 - BYOP (Bring Your Own Plant)

Bring your own plant invites you to creat a bespoke plant stand to take home. Each stand will be unique to your own style and fit to the size of plant pot you bring along on the day.

This workshop will teach traditional carpentry techniques as you will combine each component part and assemble them using a combination of halved joints and the use of wooden dowels. We will also explore scribing techniques as well as the different types of joints.

We will explore the use of commonly used hand tools like chisels, block planes, combination squares, sliding bevels, marking / mortise gauges and a variety of hand saws such as tenon, coping, compass, panel and pull saws as well as the use of pillar drills to create the correct holes needed for your assembly dowels.

Saturday School is a day of creative workshops.

Every month, we will fill the spaces of Civic House with workshops led by practitioners working across mixed disciplines. Our aim is to create a stimulating environment for testing new ideas, learning through making and sharing skills and knowledge.

Spend the day developing a new skill, exploring a practice or learning about new topics and subjects. Then, from 7pm share a meal with everyone who's taken part in the workshops served by the Civic House Kitchen team.

From 8pm onwards, Civic House will host AFTER SCHOOL CLUB, an evening of performances and live music with HEALTHY and friends. These evening events are free for workshop participants and open to the public.

Tickets are now available for the following Saturday Schools:
