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.

Shop is Hoppin

Things are really starting to roll at the OPENWorkshop. Everyone is making lots o progress with their projects. Their was a really good atmosphere of everyone taking turns with tools and sharing advice and help. And we even blew out the lights a couple of times (which is what happens when you have 4 power tools running into one power strip I s'pose).
Thanks to Carol Jo for taking the pics and bringing in all the fabric!
