Disc golf is an accessible, inclusive, and growing outdoor sport. The discs used to play the sport can be used as canvasses and customized by applying dye in creative and unique ways. The Makerspace at the Centre for Research and Innovation is partnering with the local Disc Gold club to host a disc dyeing workshop in March, 2024. This one day workshop will provide participants with the necessary materials to dye discs, and staff of the CRI will guide participants through the process. After completing their discs, we will then move to the disc golf course (near the soccer pitch in Corner Brook) to play a round of disc golf.
The goal of the workshop is to introduce creativity and expression through dyeing, as well as the resources of the makerspace and to introduce participants to the very accessible sport of disc golf.
This unique combination of arts and sports will leverage the skills of both the new makerspace at CRI and the community organization that runs our disc golf club, encourage the success of both partners, and serve as a unique public engagement activity.
