Start As A Guest
Visit the space – get a tour! We’re open every Monday 6-8pm (Craft Night) and Friday 7-10 pm (Open Shop). No reservations needed, just drop in.
You’re welcome to attend other public meetings and events.
Talk with members, bring projects to work on, use tools, see if it’s a good fit!
Note: To use power tools, you must first receive training. If not regularly scheduled, tool checkoffs can be arranged with area captains whose emails can be found here.

For more details…
We rent out “micro workshops”, 6′ wide by 8′ long, for those wanting to maintain a dedicated area for their projects and tools. They are located around the shop, so some are in ‘clean’ spaces, others in shop areas. They come with 110v power, and access to our wifi. Mail can also be delivered to our address.
The cost is $125/month, in addition to your base membership (see pricing above). We require 6 month contracts, with first/last months’ rent due on signing.
