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.

Screen Print Demo and Biscuits!
Today Meghan gave a screen printing demo. We learned about a good cheap place to get screens and the basic steps to get started, from making your design to laying down ink. It was fun and hopefully we can use this knowledge in the future to make some DIY OPENworkshop T-shirts. If you would like to learn more about screen printing there are a ton of great free tutorials and tips online. Here are two sites with different demos: here, or here .Lou then explained what biscuits and biscuit joining was all about for those of us that didn't know.
