Economical and more eco-friendly
One of the troubles with arts and crafts is the amount of resources one often needs to produce their desired project(s). Tools often wind up collecting dust, or supplies get stashed in a [to-be forgotten] pile. We try our absolute best to use materials to their fullest extent, and try to have the appropriate tools available for most arts and crafts projects.
We live in a very instantaneous world: when we want something, we buy it. We feel like this process has diluted the appreciation we have for things. Our hope is people will make projects at Ora that they will feel proud of and learn new skills.
Community - Ideas blossom when people connect. We have always wanted to provide a space which helps people connect and thrive with their peers.
