Hosted by SHoP, Saturday School is a mini autonomous learning and making site located in the belly of John Preus’ The Beast currently on view until August 3, 2014.
This week’s topic: Unscrew-U
Led by Margaret Bruno and Peter Zelchenko, Unscrew-U is a home repair workshop for DIY repairs and autodidacts. Experts bring tools and know-how, novices bring junk and curiosity, everyone brings opinions!
Alumni of Unscrew-U have repaired appliances, bikes, homes, all while discussing self-sufficiency and our relationship to the made world.
The Beast program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.
