General Shop Membership

General Shop Membership is $75 per month and comes with a key to the space.

This membership gives you access to the woodshop and ceramics studio 24/7, with the knowledge that we have a 1 strike policy on rule breaking and can shut down your access remotely

Each area of the shop requires a Basic Proficiency Test to be taken before access is granted. These classes are $25 each. Proficiency classes need to be re-taken if there is a three-month lapse in membership.
