This was the second time I was invited to participate in Χειροτέχνικα to host a DIY workshop. The first time was last October were we made a cement vase while this time we also made a vase (really, vases don’t really mean anything special to me, it’s just a coincidence) with wood and glass bottles. And you know, DIY is better with friends so I invited my friends ikariastore.gr and Black+Decker for help and they came to my assistance!
Black+Decker brought all the tools we needed while ikariastore.gr brought for us the necessary glass bottles (filled with traditional ikarian lemonade and orangeade I <3 Ikaria) to complete the project.
First thing we had to do was to drink the refreshments and get to know each other!
Then we had to cut the wood. Yannis from B&D was there to help, so both of us showed the participants how to use the saw.
Then we had to glue the wood together and create the Π shape.
Some pieces of wood needed a little sanding.
Then we had to open the holes in the wood, with holesaws.
At this point I need to say that I finally had my cards printed! Design by mr Belias of course.
We finished the vased, put our flowers in and took a “family photo” 🙂
Special thanks to Yannis from B&D. We’d still be there if it weren’t for him.
And of course, special thanks to my man who took pictures of the whole thing and made us look good!
