Create a versatile articulated armrest tray using recycled and repurposed materials

Join Alberta Craft for a free workshop as they explore the flexibility of recycled materials by creating a multi-functional wooden placemat that can be used for a sofa armrest. Using reclaimed pallet wood and fabric diverted from waste streams, resident wood nerd Tyler Sambo will guide you through the construction of a functionable piece of home décor which will long outlast its material’s expected lifespan. Join in on the discussion of reclamation techniques and processes as you customize, stain and adhere your prepared wooden pieces to fabric sourced from Blenderz Garmentz Recyclers.

Two FREE workshops will be offered: 10 am to 12 pm and 1pm to 3pm.

Finished dimensions will be approximately 12″x17″

Minimum age is 12, minors must be accompanied by an adult

The project takes inspiration from Alberta Craft Gallery’s two current furniture themed exhibitions; Furniture group exhibition, & Proven Form – Modern Perspective with Ralph Reichenbach.
