History stuff

October 18, 2012, I am cleaning out all the old pre-Tyler St todo items on the User:Akb4 page. This is a note to myself to check the wiki history for before this date if I ever need any of it.

I'm futzing with this on the wordpress site:

Artisan's Asylum is a non-profit community workshop startup in Somerville, Massachusetts. Our mission is to provide our community with a place to teach, learn, and practice crafts of all types. We actively solicit skilled artisans from the local area to teach classes with us (relating either to specific tool use or the creation of a final product), and we have open office hours where members can use all of our facilities and equipment after demonstrating proficiency.

Our fabrication capabilities include but are not limited to precision metal machining, electrical fabrication, welding, woodworking, fabricwork, cooking, painting, photography, jewelrymaking and more. We operate out of two facilities; 561 Windsor St is our 1,000 square foot clean classroom and cooking space, and 13 Joy St is our 9,000 square foot general workshop space.

Artisan's Asylum has currently not opened its doors for open office hours, but will be holding its first set of classes and a series of fundraisers in the month of June. Watch our news posts below for more information!


We're having two exciting events at our new 13 Joy Street location!

Friday, June 18 is our Grand Opening, with potluck dinner, auction, performances, and dancing! Admission will be a suggested donation of $25, which co-incidentally is also our joining fee! See the <a href="">Facebook event page</a> for the entertainment lineup

June 12, noon to 7:30 PM, we'll be painting murals. Over 4000 square feet of fresh white walls for your creative expression. We don't have as much paint or as many brushes as we'll need, so bring some if you can; if you bring a receipt for them, we can give you a tax deduction! For more information, see the <a href="http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121586191211727">Facebook event</a>
