Starting January 14, 2019

Join our community of Makers and work on your personal projects at our Open Workshop. Come in every Tuesday night and make use of our fully stocked woodshop, fiber studio and digital fabrication lab.


We provide a variety of tools and the space for you to work on your self directed projects in a collaborative environment. Makery staff will be on hand to acquaint you with the space, troubleshoot machine issues, help determine job settings, and guide you in basic tool operation. If you require more in depth training on a specific machine or design software, please attend one of our classes or certification sessions.

Must be 18+. All participants are required to sign a liability waiver before attending Open Workshop. Please visit to complete the waiver form prior to arrival.

Machine Usage

Workshop: Certification is required for operation of the laser cutter and CNC machines. Woodshop certification or a “Tool Test” during Open Workshop is required to use woodworking power tools. There is an additional fee for laser cutting and CNC milling (see pricing below). Machines are available on a first come, first served basis. Upon arrival at Open Workshop, you can sign up for a block of time on our equipment. Please be aware that this is a community space and that others may be waiting to use machines and tools.​

Fiber Studio: Sewing machines and Cricut Explore Air 2 usage available at no extra cost. If you plan on using our Cricut Explore Air 2 machine for longer than 15 mins, please bring your own blades and mats.

The Workshop Manager will have full discretion and final say on how the workshop is being used. Please check in with the Workshop Manager before beginning a project to make sure the activities will work in the shared space.

Supplies and Materials

Please note that we do not cut chipboard or MDF on our laser and CNC user must provide their own milling bits. You may bring in your own finishing supplies as long as they are non-toxic, non-hazardous and do not produce odors that will be unpleasant for others. ​
