Event description
A sharp knife is one of the small joys of life. Thankfully, hand sharpening knives is not a complicated skill.

About this event

A knife sharpening class by and for the disabled community – fluidly defined.

The Ottawa Tool Library is an accessible space and happy to provide extra support to class participants on December 3, the International Day for Persons with Disabilities.

Just let us know in advance your support needs and we will do our very best to meet them.

Like most things, knife sharpening just takes some guidance, time, and practice. In our two-hour class, you will learn to hand sharpen your knives on whetstones. We will provide the magic stones. You just need to bring 2-3 kitchen knives for practice and your smile.

Invisible, episodic, physical, mental health, or whatever superpower you (sometimes) have, we hope you will join us in learning how to sharpen your knives with stones.

Note: The tool library is wheelchair accessible via our garage door and has a small step via the front door. Our washroom is NOT accessible to people in wheelchairs.

Your safety is our top priority. In addition to following current public health guidelines set out by the city and the province we have introduced new safety measures to our workshops including:

• Masks will be mandatory at all times during the workshop.

• Workshop will be limited to maximum of 4 participants.

• All workstations will be at least 2 m apart and participants must maintain a 2 m distance from each other and instructors whenever possible.

• All workstations and tools will be sanitized by instructors before and after the workshop.

• All participants, OTL staff, and volunteers will be required to self-screen and attest that they are symptom free prior to attending the workshop.

• Use hand sanitizer (provided) upon entering the OTL and at any point necessary during the workshop.

For more information about OTL's COVID-19 response please see our webpage with more info.

Space is limited, so be sure register as soon as possible!
