VTL presents Tools 101: Make Your Own Slingback Chair at VHS


We have been holding our workshops at the Vancouver Hack Space for the first time. And while our host organization has been an absolute dream to work with, we are finding that workshops which require the transport of a large number of large tools are not sustainable for us. As such, we have opted to postpone the slingback chair workshop until we are able to hold it on-site at the Vancouver Tool Library, within a few paces of our own tool inventory.

We would like to reschedule the workshop for either May 24 2014 OR May 31st 2014. Alternatively, if you are not amenable to either of these dates, we can transfer your payment to a future workshop or refund your payment if you wish.

Please email me with confirmation you received this email, and whether you would like to remain registered (in which case, please indicate your preferred date), forward your payment to a future workshop, or acquire a refund.

Our sincere apologies for this change in schedule. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Lauren Warbeck
General Manager, Vancouver Tool Library
