Event Description

Once again Sustainable NE Seattle is collaborating with Meadowbrook Community Center to offer our Annual ‘HANDS ON!’- A Community Skills–Share Fair.

The workshop schedule is up, so take a look and plan your day. We still have some time slots open if you want to teach, contact

What is a skills fair?

A day of sharing practical skills with our neighbors – we will have short workshops on a wide variety of skills. 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR TEACHERS NOW. If you have a skill you would like to share, contact us at to offer a workshop idea, or if you have a skill you want to learn find a member of your community who knows that skill and ask them if they will teach. Classes are minimum 30 min and some up to 2 hours, but most are 1 hr long. Past classes range from basketweaving to splint setting, soil building to solar oven building. The possibilities are wide open. The sooner you can commit to teaching the better for filling the classes with participants.

When classes are set and the schedule is done it will be posted here.

Lunch provided with guest speaker Arthur Lee Jacobson with a presentation on Seattle plant foraging. He will have a walking tour on the property after the luncheon.

Right now we need volunteers for:

  • coordinators for workshops and volunteers
  • making a pot of soup for lunch
  • day-of help: check-in table, setting up lunch, Clothing Exchange area, Fermentation Station area, Bike repair area
  • social media and community outreach.

IF you can help, let us know as soon as you can!

The Fair is FREE. No need to register although some classes have size limits, it is first come, first served. Bring clothes you want to contribute to the exchange and tools to sharpen.

When? Saturday, February 10, 2018 

Skills from 10-5, plus Lunch

Where? Meadowbrook Community Center, 10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125

If you want to offer your help with organizing or on the day of the Fair please let us know as soon as you can!


Thanks for being in our community!
