This is our Facebook Group for all you makers, DIYers, builders, creators, crafters, and artists in the Ottawa Region to connect. It is a place to freely offer your support, exchange ideas, gift materials, ask for help, lend your tools, or share your projects, and beyond!

  • Have left over building materials from a recent reno?
  • Need advice on a project?
  • Looking to collaborate with others?
  • Have tools for others to borrow?

We’re an inclusive community-focused group who all share a common interest for making things from cupcakes to compost to furniture and beyond!

If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, join us!

Celebrate your project successes and help others reach theirs!
