    Name: * Revaluing the Woodshop: Responding to the loss of the Furniture Industry in Chair City
    Date: September 7, 2017
    Event Description:
    September 7
    Revaluing the Woodshop: Responding to the loss of the Furniture Industry in Chair City
    6:30 p.m.
    Gardner Museum
    28 Pearl Street, Gardner
    Join us for a panel discussion as we explore ideas about creating an inter-generational space where former furniture workers can share woodworking skills, helping to re-value the labor of former furniture workers, rebuild social connections that were lost when factories closed, and foster a place where new ideas about building community in the area can be hatched. 
    A follow-up meeting will continue to explore the idea of starting a Maker Space or Wood Gym in Gardner and see if there is a group of people interested in taking concrete steps towards its development.  Anyone with ideas, resources, and skills to share is encouraged to attend.
