July Make & Mary Event Explores Cannabis, Green Sky Collective and a Japanese Artform

If there’s one thing Portland’s great at, it’s finding new ways to be innovative with cannabis. The Make & Mary event series is no exception. Hosted by Tillamook Station in conjunction with Potency, the next workshop will be held on Friday, July 29th from 6:00-9:00PM at 665 N Tillamook Station in Portland, Oregon. It’s perfect for craftspeople who like to create while enjoying cannabis.

Special guests Green Sky Collective, Karma Organics and Highly Distributed will be present to talk about cannabis blends, the extraction process, and concentrates. A butane hash oil (BHO) extraction machine will be on display and a professional extractor will be available to answer questions. Attendees can smoke or consume on site while getting a hands-on feel for the Japanese artform known as shibori.

“This social gathering is made for those who are new to the world of cannabis as well as long-time connoisseurs,” said Yvonne Perez Emerson of Tillamook Station. “We offer a welcoming, creative environment where Portlanders can indulge freely, learn, be artistic and spend time with like-minded people.”

Attendees must be 21+ years of age. BYOW is encouraged and some premium natural inspiration will be provided, along with mocktails and snacks. “We chose shibori as the unique project focus for this event because it’s really simple yet enjoyable,” said Emerson. “Despite being around since the 8th century, it’s not commonly seen artform in today’s mainstream culture. We think it’s beautiful and fun.”

Each Make & Mary event features a different project focus and past workshops have involved the making of macrame plant holders and leather pouches for vape pens. Previous special guests included cannabis companies Quill, Cannavore and TJ’s Organic Gardens. Register online ($45/person for workshop supplies) and learn more at makeandmary.com. Space is limited.
