Space

We have a little over 19,320 square feet at 56 Corry St (Atwood Neighborhood on the near east side), feel free to stop out during hours posted on the calendar or call 608-241-4605 to see if anyone is here. Full memberships are 100/month, 50/month for college students. This membership gives you access to the space, tools, and equipment you’ve been trained to use. We offer a la carte classes for more sophisticated equipment like welders, mills, lathes, 3D printers; and require a shop safety/orientation class to keep the insurance companies happy and you safe. Most classes are (roughly) flat rate 20/hour.
