At long last, the return of last year’s most popular workshop – Wheel Building! To better cover the topic, this workshop is being extended into a series. The first part is tailored to the very beginning steps of wheel building: theory, nomenclature, materials, measuring, and lacing. The second part covers vertical and horizontal truing, tensioning, dishing, stress relief, and finishing.
The cost for the workshop is $20, unless you bring your own wheel build materials – rim, spokes, and hub.
The first workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00 on Saturday, February 25th.
The second workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00* on Sunday, February 26th.
*End time subject to change, as needed

It’s a brand new year, so why not shake off those 2016 problems at Open Shop this Thursday, January 12th, 12:00-5:30? If you’re new to the WRENCH and would like to volunteer, kick off 2017 by joining our Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, January 14th at 1:00pm.
The regularly scheduled Open Shop for Thursday, December 15th is canceled as we put the shop back together again after last weekend’s big event.
Thanks for your patience and support! See you at the next open shop in early January, 2017!
Thanks to the tireless efforts of volunteers before the event even kicks off, the Cycle of Giving is ready to begin!
We would like to thank our sponsors for making this weekend possible.
