It’s time to hack the wood
On 20-22 of October, Garage48 Wood hackathon will be driving us into the magical world of wood!
Garage48 Wood hackathon is focusing on building real things from wood and solving challenges in wood and furniture industries. The event will bring together wood industry companies, industrial designers and architects, engineers and wood processing wizards and students from many fields – wood, engineering, design, art, entrepreneurship and others. Come and let your imagination and innovative spirit fly as the range of things that can be built is from small size design elements to a normal-size piece of furniture to a wooden house detail or a mock-up of a real building.
Garage48 Wood is organized by Garage48, TSENTER Centre of Competence for Wood Processing and Furniture Manufacturing and Vidzeme Planning Region as a part of Wood & Furniture project in the Interreg Estonia-Latvia programme. The venue where all the hacking magic will take place is hosted by TSENTER in Väimela, Võru county.
We are inviting designers & architects, carpenters/joiners, technologists, constructors, engineers and wood industry practitioners & professionals to hack into wood and build physical prototypes in 48 hours. Industry mentors, Võru County Vocational Training Centre’s workshop rooms, TOOLS, equipment (including various wood materials) & on-site action-team are all there to help you build your innovative idea into reality and deliver a rocking final demo on Sunday evening.
Spots are limited! Act fast and secure your seat!

For the prototype building to go successfully at the hackathon, we will be organising pre-events in both Estonia and Latvia to get you ready for the main event, discuss ideas for the hackathon and give tips for pitching your ideas.
Pre-events will take place from 9.-18. October in Riga, Valmiera, Tallinn and Tartu. Exact dates and registering to the pre-events is announced soon - stay tuned!
Hackathon ticket also includes transportation to the event. We will have buses coming on routes Tallinn-Tartu-Väimela and Riga-Valmiera-Väimela. Detailed information about buses is coming soon!
We will provide some floor room at TSENTER premises for accommodation - so take your sleeping bag with you.
