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.

This week we worked on reorganizing the entire OPENworkshop room to save space and create specific areas to house tools, books, wood, etc. It was a lot of work, but I think it totally paid off because it is very clean and easy to find things now. Eric continued work on his project, sanding down some wood and getting everything cut to the right length. I also found a great blueprint for some modular shelves which don't look hard to build, but are also really nice looking.
