What started as two people teaching classes in the library has evolved over the last five years to become a 14,000 square foot workshop on the former Oscar Mayer property. With an astounding array of tools–from WWII era, industrial machining equipment to computer-driven laser cutters, Madison’s community workshop has taken their non-profit to a whole new level.
Imagine a space where knitters and welders hang out over pizza, talking about their latest projects and lending an extra pair of hands when needed. Where 3D printers are making forms for jewelry casting, and electronics wizards are building arduino tool controls for the woodshop. Where a creative mind can walk in with one skill and a year later have more than they can count.
On Saturday, September 21st, from 12-5pm, the Bodgery members put out the welcome mat to show people around our wonderful new shop, gave demonstrations of amazing tools and techniques, ate cake, and socialized with others who like to make things! Hope you had a chance to join us!
