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.

Interstate Sign Coasters

This weekend I came down to Champaign to visit and had a chance to stop in OPENworkshop and build some stuff with Louis. I decided to cut out some "Interstate Sign" shaped drink coasters to go along with the Illinois shelf I made earlier in the summer. It felt good to get back in there and make stuff. I think that OPENworkshop is a great opportunity for people to make stuff without spending a bunch of money, but also to use junk materials to make something new. It was also great to come back after being gone for a while and seeing all the cool products people made.
