Skill Shares: Live Workshops
At our launch, Jac Steiner and his crew from Cycle Jam ran a bike maintenance session. In the spirit of DIY, we also ran a beer bewing workshop for beginners with local homebrewer Tom Walker, and the talented Milly Cooper, Alex Gilbert and Georgia Ginnivan led singing workshops. More DIY fun than you can poke a (home-made) stick at. Our launch was hosted by the lovely Canberra Student Housing Co-Op.
