Volunteer With Us

Community Glue Workshop is always looking for volunteers! If you’ve ever fixed something, we want you! If you’re the go-to fixer-upper for your friends and family, we really want you! No formal training or credentials are required, just a desire to help out, a little experience, and a bit of ingenuity. Some tools related to your specialty wouldn’t hurt, either, but we’ve got some you can use. We’re looking for woodworkers, amateur (or professional) electricians, techie types, bike mechanics, sewing machine captains, blade sharpeners, adhesive aficionados, and other hands-on people. E-mail if you’re interested, and we’ll follow up with information.

      We wish we could…ideally as support grows and if we are able to get some kind of funding, we’ll grow these workshops in a multitude of ways. We’d love your help of course! Be sure to email with your info so we can add you to the volunteer roster!

    Hi! I just saw the national NBC news report tonight (Wed) at 5:30pm, featuring Kitchen Sink and Community Glue Workshop…how exciting! I was so glad to hear about it, and I definitely want to volunteer. Yes, I AM one of those people that “can fix almost anything”…and that all of my friends come to! 🙂 I always say that “I am a gal who is not afraid of power tools”! I would love to be able to help out, in anyway I can, and meet new people, and make new friends! I can sew, paint, design (repair) jewelry, recover seat cushions / re-upholster furniture, repair furniture….. I am an artist/desinger and Interior Stylist/Decorator, so the handy-woman / DIY things are just an extension of all of that! I am very creative and inventive, and am very good at “seeing things in a different light”, as far as not only repairing items, but also in re-purposing them.

    My one main question is: do you do this regularly / once a month at Kitchen Sink, or is it on a rotating basis, at different locales? Let me know “how it works” / how often everyone gets together. I look forward to hearing from you, and in joining efforts and helping out the community!

    Thank you for your time and consideration,
    Best Regards,

      Hi Rebecca! We do the clinics monthly, and almost always at Kitchen Sink, though occasionally we branch out to other locations. We would love for you to volunteer with us! Please email me at and we can touch base about next sessions. Thanks! -Carla
