REGARDING CLASSES: We currently do not offer classes on the Trotec laser, wood lathe, vacuum former, injection molder, and machine shop equipment (manual mill, lathe, Tormach, etc). However, many of these classes are currently being developed but we do not yet have a date for when they will be added to the course schedule.
Important Info to Understand Before Signing Up for a Membership: We understand that having access to a makerspace can be very exciting and members want to get started quickly after their membership is activated. In order to make sure that you are registering for a membership in the most cost effective manner, we have. provided the information below. This information is also covered in the mandatory new member orientation. Upon purchasing a membership, you will receive an email that includes a link to view the orientation.
Members must have clearance on any equipment that they plan to use. There are two ways to receive a clearance:
- Take a class that includes the necessary clearance. This is well-suited for those who do not have much or any experience with the equipment that they want to use. Our class schedule can be found on our website. Classes range from $105 – $420, depending on the length of the class and other factors. You can take a class before you become a member so that once your membership is active, you do not have to wait to use the equipment, as classes are offered based on a schedule and the class you may be interested in may not be available immediately.
- Apply for a clearance session with one of our instructors. Clearances are only available to members and are $45 and may cover a single piece of equipment or several pieces of equipment. These sessions are meant for members, who already have a good deal of experience with equipment, to demonstrate a list of competencies, showing the instructor that they can use the equipment safely and properly. NO INSTRUCTION IS PROVIDED DURING THESE SESSIONS. Clearance sessions are pass/fail. Note: After the completion of the mandatory new member orientation, those who have signed up for an individual membership will receive a coupon for $45 off their first class or clearance. This coupon does not apply to corporate or non-profit memberships.
This membership is for individuals who would like access to the space, equipment, and tools.
