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. You may use the Facebook group to ask members if they're be around; no guarantee though because it's based on membership's free time. Workshops are also discounted at this rate. Because of the minimal amount and work required we require quarterly (3-month) commitments at this level. It will not auto-renew, this level is a low cost introduction.
Full Membership: You're investing in our growth! You get 24/7 access if you want the card; you'll need to pay for the cost of the card and background check (one-time $15) which will be billed to your account. We will review a checklist of item when you receive your card AND we will push your renewal date to when you get your card so you're not missing out. Cards are picked up during "Open" times (Thursdays and Every other Saturday). If you remind us we'll bump your renewal to the date you picked up your card. Expect an email 1-3 days after you register to setup a time you can come in.
Alternative options:Grant Membership: 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: $140 per section, contact an officer or director for more details. (Often this is not available).
*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.
