That’s right! “Le Lab”, the Maker Space at Dorval Elementary will be helping the kids make homemade string instruments…

A call-out to the community to have some fun helping the kids!!!

The grade 1 to grade 3 kids (6 to 8-year-old makers) at Dorval Elementary will be making acoustic Canjos (Coffee Can Banjos) and then we’ll be hosting a local music celebrity to teach them how to play them. 

WHO KNOWS, YOU MIGHT BE SEEING THIS AT YOUR KIDS SCHOOL TOO, IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE!

This is a Sustainable Art Project for us and we really need your help with some of the reclaimed materials.

For this project we are asking for donations of:

  1. Small Coffee Cans 
  2. Broken guitars
  3. Guitar strings (used or new)
  4. Old broom handles
  5. Old wooden baseball bats

You can drop off your donations at Dorval Elementary (c/o Le Lab) @ 1750 Carson Ave, Dorval, Quebec H9S 1N3 (Or mail them in, if you so desire.)

OR

Send me a message in the comments for more details… If you want the message to stay private, just let me know and I won’t publish it.

We have a deadline on this and need the materials by December 1st, if possible.
