Interesting Vancouver Is Hosting A Do Shop at MakerLabs July 25th

6 Jul

InterestingVancouverThere are some very neat events coming up this summer.  One that caught our eye was a partnership between Interesting Vancouver and MakerLabs. They are hosting DoShops with a view to gathering the curious to explore, discover and learn through hands-on demonstrations.

Their first DoShop takes place on Saturday July 25th and features Piñata Making with Meaghan Kennedy.  If you are not familiar with the name or her work, Meaghan made her first piñata over 5 years ago for a local cable show and fell in love with the process. She left the professional work world to pursue a life as a piñata artist. Just goes to show when you follow something you love. Meaghan’s piñatas have been featured in GQ, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Huffington Post, the Globe and Mail, CTV News, Elle Canada, Ion Magazine, Vancouver is Awesome and The Georgia Straight. Her work was also recently exhibited at Hot Art Wet City.

Also lined up for this DoShop is YoYo Tricks with Harrison Lee. In the world of yo-yo’ing, Harrison is known as the ‘hurricane’. Harrison has been yoyo’ing since the age of 11 and  became the 2013 Canadian National Freestyle YoYo Champion and represented Canada at the 2014 World YoYo Championship in Prague, Czech Republic.

These look to be truly interesting and fun events at a minimal cost. Tickets are available online at Eventbrite for $30.00. Choose between one of the two activities and they will start you off with a 2 hour session before a 1 hour lunch break at Noon and then you complete your ‘Do’ session from 1:00 – 2:00 pm.  Lunch, supplies and even beer are covered.   The event runs on Saturday, July 25th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at MakerLabs 780 East Cordova Street.  Interesting Vancouver and MakerLabs invite you to come out “roll up your sleeves and get ready to ‘Do’!”
