Maker Season 2017

TechShop ® is a vibrant, creative community that provides access to instruction, tools, software, and space. You can make virtually anything at TechShop. Come and build your dreams!

A playground for creativity, TechShop is an open-access, DIY workshop and fabrication studio. We are a community-based space where entrepreneurs, artists, makers, teachers, and students come together to learn and work together.

What We Offer

TechShop provides access to instructional classes, events, and over $1 million worth of professional equipment and software at each location. Each of our facilities includes laser cutters, plastics and electronics labs, a machine shop, a woodshop, a metalworking shop, a textiles department, welding stations, and class and conference rooms. Free coffee and fresh popcorn are always available for your enjoyment. Members have open access to design software, featuring the Autodesk Design Suite, and huge project areas with large work tables are available for completing projects and working with others.

Most importantly, you can explore the world of making in a collaborative and creative environment. Our incredible community of members provides inspiration and support for creating projects, and comprehensive instruction and coaching from our engaging staff ensure you have a safe, meaningful, and rewarding experience.

We also offer a number of additional services to help engage people in the act of making. TechShop has developed experience-driven corporate events to bring teams together, youth programming to encourage young makers, prototyping services, and so much more.

How It Works

It's simple. Anyone may attend classes and most meet-up events. For a monthly or annual fee, members can reserve and use TechShop's tools upon successful completion of equipment-specific Safety and Basic Use (SBU) classes. Talented staff members are available full time to help develop ideas and improve technical skills.

You really have to see it to believe it. Stop by for a tour with one of our Dream Consultants and have all your questions answered. Whatever your background or skill set, come in and prepare to be inspired!!!
