After much discussion, and following the example of institutions like the UW Madison, the Bodgery’s board has decided to cancel Open Shop nights for the next few weeks, at least. We will monitor the situation as it emerges, and extend the cancellation window if needed.
As of March 15th, we are also temporarily not accepting new membership applications.
We’ll keep you informed of when things return to normal operations on this website.
Current members still have access to the shop–this only relates to public events, like Open Shop nights and classes. We hope that by limiting the flow of traffic through the shop, the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19) will be slowed in the Madison area.
That said, we take public access very seriously, and will reopen to the public as quickly as we prudently can. Stay tuned to this website for our re-open date.
