In order to become a member of the makerspace, you must:

  • be at least 16 years of age (with parental consent), or 18 years in your own right
  • agree to abide by makerspace rules and policies, including the Code of Conduct
  • not have had your membership previously revoked or terminated

If you meet these criteria and wish to become a member, great! Sign up on the membership website and attend a new member orientation session. Once orientation is completed, members will receive their key card for the space, and may use simple tools. Members may also register for additional tool area check-off classes following new member orientation.


Orientation sessions are held on alternating Saturdays and Sundays.

  • First and third Saturday orientations are held at 12:00pm
  • Second and fourth Sunday orientations are held at 4:00pm.

To join an orientation session, sign up for one on Eventbrite. If your schedule doesn't allow you to attend an orientation session at that time, contact the operations manager.


Makerspace memberships are month-to-month, and may be cancelled at any time. To do so, log into the member system and click "Subscriptions", and then click the menu next to your membership tier. 

Your membership will remain valid until the end of your subscription period (e.g., if your last payment prior to cancelling was on January 12th, your membership will remain valid until February 12th.)

Former members who meet the criteria for membership may rejoin the makerspace at any time.

Please note that tool authorizations and training for complex tools will only remain valid for 6 months following cancellation; if your membership has been cancelled for more than 6 months, you may be asked to retake orientation and tool training classes.

Membership Tiers

A basic summary of our membership tiers is listed here.


Supporter membership is $19/month. Supporter member privileges include access to the makerspace common areas during public hours, and an invitation to all makerspace social events and outings. This tier is intended for those who wish to support the makerspace and be a part of the community, but have no need of our tools.


Maker membership is $60/month. Maker member privileges include:

  • key-card access to space from 10am to 8pm, 365 days a year
  • access to all tools (subject to training)
  • a vote in all member elections
  • eligibility to run for board
  • eligibility to become an area lead or tool champion


Senior/Student/Educator membership is $39/month. It confers all of the privileges of Maker membership.

To qualify for this tier, you must be one of the following:

  • 65 or older
  • current student in high school/college/university
