Workshop #2 Bike Repair - February 22nd by Wilder .is

For our second workshop each student paired up to learn how to clean and repair a bike from the guys at Melo Velo.

We learned the basic parts of a bike and were given a checklist of things to look out for and to repair on our own bikes. 

Then we learned all about the workings of tires; how to take them off and put them back on and how to repair and change an inner tube. 

After lunch, we got a quick lesson on how to repair and adjust brakes and learned the proper way to clean and grease the gears and chain. 

We hope to donate the bikes and use some next week to make our bike powered phone chargers! 

Workshop #1 Community Organizing + Design - Feburary 8th 2014 by Kelly Kazmierczak

We had our first workshop last weekend, all of the students got to know each other through a series of games and community building exercises.

We created the WILDER board which we wrote our motivations for the workshop series and also made it accessible for the community to be involved and add their own card!

We went on a photo scavenger hunt, which helped us to get to know each other and get our creative juices flowing (check out each groups pictures below).

We also built a library with books that go along with our goals of the workshops and give information on sustainability. The library pockets were made by SU students and high school students with patio furniture fabric and stables!

We hope to get everyone who is visiting 601 Tully involved in some way!
