GOE Release

Here's the press release from Steve O at the Garageofevilnetwork.com reguarding the workshop.

-- Start Release-- After much time and effort the Garage of Evil is now real. And by real, I mean an actual 1400 sq foot workshop, located in a great mill space off the highway in Providence, Rhode Island.

This is a fully equipped workshop with space to build in, learn in, and we hope share your know-how in. This space will be open multiple days a month, so a shop member can simply walk in and build, or if they choose just hang out and soak up the haunt vibes of people creating. Special classes and events will be held throughout the year, and we welcome Make and Take or other groups that need a space for a day to bring haunters together.

Many of you are already familiar with the idea of a shared, creative build studio. A lot of artists communities that require specialized tools and know-how have spaces like this, and recently in the nerd builder community "Hackerspaces" have been popping up all over.We thought (because we're crazy) why not do this for the haunt community? And thus, an idea was hatched which is now reality.

The Garage of Evil Workshop will soon be open to you, in fact all that was left to do was pick a date for our grand opening.

Some of us work year round, some seasonally, and some wait for the frost to thaw. It was hard to pick a date that captured the awakening of our collective interest in the haunt season. So... we guessed, and April won.

This April, Saturday the 14th, and we hope every mid April annually come for a ritual to awaken your haunt muse, bury any shortcomings of the prior year, and ensure a successful haunt season. Surround yourself with fellow haunters and chant utterly phoney quasi-Gregorian gibberish as we sacrifice a Care Bear to the haunt gods.

This ritual will be at least as serious as the worst 70's horror movie you've ever seen and will be followed with food and drink on the GoE, and a fun mingling with your haunt peers. Bring yourself, bring a haunter friend, talk shop and have a fun day/night. We'll cover our upcoming courses/events/etc at the shop for 2012, and very much would like to have your input to help us fill up our calendar.

Date: April, Saturday the 14th Where: The GoE Shop - 25 Eagle Street Providence RI Time: 3:00 PM to ... ?
