Enter to Win a Handmade Canoe and Support Yestermorrow!

We believe that sustainable design is essential to fighting climate change and re-inspiring what is possible in a sustainable future. Students at Yestermorrow - whether they are DIYers, changemakers, or professionals -  learn to become master crafters: people who integrate the design and build process to create more holistic, human-centered places.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to our scholarship fund. The scholarship fund is available for students who cannot afford full tuition and would like to use a Yestermorrow education to advance their career or improve their communities. A donation to Yestermorrow's Scholarship Fund will empower more students to advance their careers, improve their neighborhoods, and advance the sustainable design revolution. 

At Yestermorrow, we are the forefront of a design revolution to create a sustainable, more just world. 

 

Thank you for your support! Tickets are available to purchase for $15 each or 5 tickets for $60 until May 31, 2017!

Prize #1: The Flax Canoe

The Design/Builder, Hilary Russell, skinned this boat with flax grown at Flaxland in Cotswolds, England.  The flax, which is the strongest natural fiber, is especially woven in a rip-stop pattern for skinning small boats.
