Eric Gorges at Milwaukee Makerspace
Milwaukee Makerspace and Boswell present Eric Gorges, host of A Craftsman's Legacy and author of new book, A Craftsmans Legacy: Why Working with Our Hands Gives Us Meaning, written with John Sternfield.
Gorges will appear at Milwaukee Makerspace for a talk on Tuesday, May 8, 7:00 pm. Tickets are $5, plus tax and ticketing fee, with the $5 donated to Milwaukee Makerspace (available at gorgesmke.bpt.me). Doors open at 6:00 pm. Milwaukee Makerspace will be giving tours of their facility before the event.
Filled with insights about the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of craftsmanship, A Craftsmans Legacy identifies the craftsmans shared values: taking time to slow down and enjoy the process, embracing failure, knowing when to stop and when to push through, and accepting that perfection is an illusion. Gorges extols the benefits of getting out of ones comfort zone and the importance of learning the traditions of the past in order to carry those values into the future.
Along the way, Gorges tells his own story about leaving the corporate world to focus on what he loves. This is a book for seekers of all kinds, an exhilarating look into the heart and soul of modern-day makers--and how they can inspire us all.
What is Milwaukee Makerspace? Let them answer that: "Milwaukee Makerspace, at its heart, is a place for people who like to build, invent, tinker and/or learn new skills and expand their minds. We have a wide range of skill sets in our membership and you're likely to find someone who can talk about most any technical concept with you in a meaningful way. We are a physical space where you can come, 24/7 as a member, and have access to wide array of equipment you are not very likely to have at home. Plus, there are folks around the space that can give you tips and pointers on operating that equipment effectively. We will train you to use the equipment, and ask that you do the same for others."
Attendance for this event is capped at 110. Tickets are nonrefundable after May 7. Don't forget to spread the word - register for this event at gorgesmke.bpt.me.
