On Saturday April, 21st, 2012 a few of our members visited the UWM Kenilworth Open Studios, and got a look at some of the work produced by the Peck School of the Arts faculty and students.
My only complaint is that the event only lasted 3 hours! :)
Seriously, we could have spent twice that long seeing the work, the workspaces, the tools, and the people.
We had a great time talking to Frankie Flood about his work, RepRaps, tools, the Makerspace, and just making in general. Check out his handverker blog for a great behind the scenes look at some of the things he’s working on.
There were plenty of other things of interest to our members, including printmaking, photography, screen printing, music, film, CNC machines and 3D printers… and a personal favorite… Cake!
If you missed it, put it on the calendar for 2013. They only open up like this once a year, and it’s definitely worth seeing.
And if you don’t feel like waiting that long, there’s some great Summer Workshops in Jewelry & Metalsmithing that at least a few of our members may be taking part in.
