TechShop will offer the 01SJ community a smaller but fully functional version of a TechShop location inside of South Hall as part of the Out of the Garage Into the World program. Including equipment such as MIG welders, CNC mills, laser cutters, wood working and basic hand tools.
But more than just access to all of this equipment, they will also provide artists and participants with equipment specific training and whatever assistance they need to create successful and complete installations. One of the ways we will do this is by providing a TechShop Dream Coach skilled in the operation of all equipment to act as a Shop Supervisor. This individual will be available to support artists during the construction of their projects and offer whatever additional help they may need. TechShop also hopes to be a vital meeting and point of collaboration for everyone working in the space.
