Sam Waddell: Senior Apprentice, Production Coordinator, Crafter at heart

My degree is in plant sciences and science education, and has helped lead me to my substantial interest in sustainable gardening and agriculture, as well as in the medicinal properties of plants. I have been integrating my interest in herbalism, aromatherapy, and maker culture with sustainable urban agriculture. I have made my own wines and fermentations, bath bombs, lotions, salves, and oil infusions using herbs from my garden. I taught a workshop on medicinal plants at Evergreen's
community garden. I have a keen interest in aromatherapy and learning more about the healing properties of essential oils.

DIY and crafting has been a key aspect of my life and you can always find me working on a project. For my Little Craft Drawer Etsy shop, I create an eclectic assortment of the hand-crafted art that brings me joy. I love the cycle of honing new techniques and skills, and applying them to an exciting variety of projects. I crochet, embroider, wire wrap jewelry, and draw. In this way, there is always a playful flow to my work. I give old materials a new purpose by using reclaimed wood, fabric, and yarn. No matter which medium I am working in, my crafts radiate the wonder and joy of making from my childhood. I can't wait to share it with you.

What are the rates for Evening, 2-hour Intro Workshops?

Pay-What-Feels-Right aka Pay What You Can at the end of the workshop.
Suggested payment is $40.

$10 Materials Fee is NON-REFUNDABLE but can be transferred another date with minimum 7 days notice. With less than 7 days full days notice, the entire workshop fee paid is non-refundable and non-transferable. If you can't attend, consider sending someone in your place and let us know before the workshop the name and email of the person who is coming.

How does Pay-What-Feels-Right aka Pay What You Can work?

You will be invited to pay what feels right for our labour, marketing, travel costs and the space rental after the workshop. We will hand out envelopes in case you want to contribute anonymously. If you would like the amount on your receipt, you can prepay an amount with your deposit, or you can come to the cash desk at the back with cash, or your credit or debit card and we will add your PWYW amount to your receipt.

It's up to you. We want workshops to be available to people with a range of means. Regular DIY workshop prices in Toronto range from $30 to $80 per participant for a two-hour workshop.
* Paying what you earn per hour. If you earn $15 per hour, you could pay $30. If you earn $30 per hour, you could pay $60.
* Paying based on your annual income. If your annual income is $19,000, you could pay $19. If your annual income is $42,000, you could pay $42.
* Paying what feels right for what you received. If you recently paid $50 for a semi-private two-hour workshop, you could pay $50.
* That you are paying for the marketing, teacher's labour, the people who helped prepare materials, set up and clean up. Generally, six hours of work go into every two-hour workshop, and eighteen hours of labour go into every 6-hour workshop. Our workshops are all semi-private and include people who are exchanging work rather than paying money. We do not often earn more than minimum wage and we hope to change that!
* That you are receiving products you have made, skills that will last a lifetime, and 50% off essential oils at Anarres forever!
