Free Advice

Look for me at the beaches, downtown around the VAG and in random spots in the city on sunny, warm days here in Vancouver offering "Free Advice." I put out a sign, a couple of chairs and offer my free advice to those people that ask for it. Pictures and more details soon. Why? Well, why not?

Button Making Workshops

After more than a year, I am no longer offering button making workshops. Thanks to everyone that participated in or hosted a workshop! Below are a few examples of the button making workshop. For a while it ran weekly which was pretty great.

Blim Special Guest Workshop Series:

2" is the new 1" Button Workshop

Saturday, January 28, 2006 (3-6pm)

Blim featured more than just one inch buttons. This button workshop allowed 9 people to make not only 1", but 1.25", 2" and 3" custom buttons. Is it true? Bigger is better? It seemed most wanted a good mix of sizes.

Holiday Button Making Workshops

More button making fun, just in time for the holidays! The perfect DIY gift to give friends and relatives: one-of-a-kind one inch buttons. Thanks to all the participants.

The button making workshops at Parking Spot were pretty fun despite the tiny space. Small groups of 7 people worked for 2 hours making as many buttons as they could. Only 7 people? Well, Parking Spot is pretty small... I stood outside to take this picture! Thanks to Scott for hosting my workshop. And thanks to the participants from all the workshops at Parking Spot. You guys made some pretty cool buttons.

Contemporary Art Gallery: Button Making Workshop

The Contemporary Art Gallery, as part of their membership drive, asked me to do a button making workshop for their guests on June 9, 2005. The theme of this event was "buttons" (of course!) to celebrate the rebranding of the gallery by Rethink Advertising. The people who participated in the button making were so excited to produce their own one-of-a-kind one inch buttons. All in all, this was a great event.

My Hot One Inch Action partner Jim Hoehnle was also on hand to help the guests create button art. Thanks Jim. And thanks to Nina Krieger at the CAG for inviting us.
