Programs

Open Shop Drop-In    Thursdays, Noon – 5:30                                                           

Once a week participants drop in to fix their bike or build a bike with the assistance of WRENCH staff and volunteers. Everyone is welcome to participate. To ensure that money is not a barrier to accessing services, bicycles & parts are offered by suggested donation (sliding scale) or in exchange for volunteer time (average 4.5 hours for a bicycle).

 Note:  If just taking parts cash donation mandatory

Volunteer Shop        Saturdays, 2:00 – 4:30                                                            

Participants build skills by stripping, recycling and sorting bicycles & parts or working on other tasks that support WRENCH programming. Once per month Volunteer Shop hours are expanded to include volunteer orientation workshops.

Next Volunteer Orientation – Saturday, May 3rd at 1pm

Community Workshops

Bike Part Art – Saturday, May 3rd 2-4:30 pm at the WRENCH

The Wrench has been paired up with local artist Dimitry Melman, who will be working with volunteers and drop in participants to create works of art with mosaic tiles, paint, and of course bicycle parts! To get started, Dimitry will be visiting the shop every second Saturday. Everyone is encouraged to bring friends and family for a fun afternoon of arts & crafts. No experience necessary, come get creative!

Please spread the word!
