Are you ready to make? Not only will you have access to tools* and shared space but you're about to meet some of the great makers of the north end! With your membership we will pay the bills to support the space, put on educational workshops, and obtain new tools.
We appreciate your consideration and hope you'll help us build a great makerspace; the heart of a makerspace is the people, not the tools.
The options as you scroll down fall into two basic options below:
Limited Membership: You will have access to the shop during "open" times, and any time you coordinate with a full member to have the space open. You may use the mailing list to request specific open times; no guaranteed times because it's based on membership's free time. Most workshops are also discounted at this rate. Because of the minimal amount and work required we require quarterly (3-month) commitments at this level.
Full Membership: You're investing in our growth! You get 24/7 access if you request a keycard for access; you'll need to pay for the cost of the card and background check (one-time $15).
Free: This option is only here because people can demote themselves into this group. You'll have no access outside workshops you sign up for attendance.
Sponsorship: Some memberships may be sponsored when funds are available for low income persons; please consult any officer or director and apply for "Grant Membership" below. Our bylaws specifically prohibit any form of discrimination.
Private Workspace: TBD (target ~3$/sq ft.) .. based on your needs, contact a director for more details.
*Not all tools are available immediately once part of the membership. All power tools require some basic safety education and most of the CNC-based equipment requires some use knowledge and certification. Meet use at an open house or tour for more details.
