when: Sat. – Sun. April 20th – 21st 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
where: Freewheel Community Bike Shop (1804 S. Park St. #5)
This Earth Week Madison’s Freewheel Community Bike Shop will be hosting a weekend workshop exploring and practicing the construction of bicycle carts. Using an easy design, low cost parts, and simple fabrication skills & tools, participants will share with each other basic skills and perhaps BUILD a cart for themselves as well!! You’ll experience the basics of steel conduit bending and cutting and basic Oxy-acetylene welding. The workshop will be split into two days. Saturday will be focused on learning and skill sharing and getting the process down. Sunday will be more of a construction event where we’ll all attempt putting together roughly ten or more bicycle carts in a large spectacular group effort.
The public is welcome to view each day’s events for FREE, but a small donation to Freewheel will allow folks hands-on practice and use of tools the whole weekend. And if you pre-register before Apr 18th, for a sliding-scale $25-50 you can sign-up to construct and take home your very own cart. REGISTER SOON for details! We’re also looking for volunteers. So, if you have a few skills to share and would like to help volunteer please register as well. Info? firstname.lastname@example.org or #920-763-5970
