Sign Up Link Here:  tinyurl.com/Y7GWR4AW
Open to youth ages 16-29 of all skill levels who want to learn how to make a DIY notebook.
We encourage people to up-cycle materials from packaging and old artwork.

What you’ll need:
-Approx. 10-20 sheets of paper/recycled paper/old artwork
-Embroidery thread or Dental Floss
-Hammer + 1 Nail (for making pilot holes)
-Protective pad/ old book/ magazine / thick newspaper for protecting table

-Cardboard or cardstock (similar size as paper)
-Fabric + glue for fancy cover

Note: If you don’t have all the materials, we can improvise during the workshop.
A thinner notebook can be made if you do not have access to a hammer and nail; you can use a thumbtack, or a thicker sewing needle to create holes in a thinner notebook.

Dear Friends and Investors,

Greetings from the SKETCH Project Home Team! We hope that you and your family are keeping well and safe during this time.

UPDATE: SKETCH is placing the capital campaign to purchase our studios on brief hiatus until the fall.

Our campaign has been a great success so far, with over $370,000 raised in funds and Community Bonds! However, in face of the COVID-19 pandemic, SKETCH is taking action to suspend the campaign to allow the time needed for those excited about our campaign to be in a more secure position to participate.

If you have already donated to the campaign, or purchased SKETCH Community Bonds, we deeply appreciate your commitment to Project Home. If you've just recently submitted your bond-purchase documents, we will still process your investment.

Have any questions about your donations or bond purchase? Please do not hesitate to contact SKETCH Executive Director, Rudy Ruttimann at rudy@sketch.ca.

This summer, we'll be working with our campaign partners and SKETCH community to determine exactly when we relaunch in the Fall. We'll be sure to keep you posted over the summer.

You can still inquire about SKETCH, our capital campaign, and its progress at invest@sketch.ca or by following us at @SKETCHToronto.

Thank you for your time, and we wish all the best for you and your family.

-The SKETCH Team & Campaign Advisory
