This Summer OPENSOURCE Art will hold a weekly evening workshop for making home products out of reclaimed materials from the Champaign-Urbana community. OPENSOURCE will have a basic wood shop set up with experienced people in shop to assist with using the tools and a wide range of waste materials in stock. Participants are also invited to bring in their own reclaimed material and tools. Let's get together and make some beautiful products out of waste from our area!

OPENworkshop will take place Wednesday nights from 7-10pm. Additional meetings will be added as needed.

The beginning

For the past few weeks we have had people start to collect waste materials to build with, research materials (books, magazines, articles, etc.) and tools. We have begun to set up a woodshop in one of the front rooms at OPENSOURCE Art in downtown Champaign. Everything is in the early stages as far as designing and producing things, but hopefully we can start building some cool stuff over the next few weeks.

I found this seller on Etsy that has a lot of things made from reclaimed wood, including what looks to be pallets. I thought we could get some ideas for smaller things, like boxes, picture frames, etc.
