Community Outreach: Women.Design.Build Potluck & Garage Sale June 3, 7-10 PM

Women.Design.Build Potluck & Garage Sale, June 3 2010, 7 - 10 pm Austin, TX - On Thursday June 3, 2010, Women.Design.Build will host an evening of discussion, inquiry and curiosity about learning the trades of design and construction.

Are you curious about learning home improvement, woodworking, or green design methods? Do you have a general interest in design and building but are not quite sure how to get started?

The mission of Women.Design.Build is to provide the women of Austin the opportunity to engage in design and construction activities via workshops and community projects. Before we can move any further, we need to know what the community's interests are. To explore your interests, learn more about our efforts, enjoy homemade eats, and peruse the garage sale items, come to the Austin Green Art Warehouse on the evening of June 3, 2010.

Located on the Austin State Supported Living Center campus, the Austin Green Art warehouse is rich with materials varying from a collection of animal vertebrae to an array of antique machinery. These items will be sold at the event in our effort to continue to build-out the warehouse. The potluck is optional, but feel free to bring your favorite dish.

The community's insight is critical to our development: we ask participants to come inquisitive, enthusiastic, and hungry. This event is free and open to the public.
