How It Works

It's simple. Anyone may attend classes. 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!
