This Friday, August 24, from 3:30-5:50 please join us for our final Free Skool Friday gathering, where we will be discussing plans for the future of the Free Skool in the chillier months. Jayne will be hosting another tutorial on cross-stitch and embroidery (no experience necessary-tools provided!) If you have ideas for what you would like to embroider beforehand, send her a line and she'll help with a pattern.
If anyone would like to host/co-host an upcoming workshop in the fall or winter, or if you have suggestions of what you would like to see, please feel free to share.
Free Skool Fridays are an initiative which began in the Community Garden/Outdoor Learning Space beginning in June 2018. Mini-lectures and workshops attempt to disrupt hierarchies, encourage snacking, provide anyone with an opportunity to experience and experiment with course facilitation, and open up ideas of who are "experts" in their fields. These spaces aim to be intentionally anti-hierarchical, anti-oppressive and question the role of educational institutions in teaching and learning. We hope to open McGill space outside of the campus community and encourage anyone to participate. Learners of all ages welcome!
