TechShop DC-Arlington is made possible by a continued partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation (VACI) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). We are a community-based workshop and prototyping studio on a mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation. This brand new TechShop location will be packed with cutting-edge tools, equipment, and computers loaded with design software featuring the Autodesk Design Suite. Most importantly, TechShop offers the space to make, and the support and camaraderie of a community of makers.
It’s official: Everything is in place and ready for members and the public to use our new, amazing space.
Beginning Wednesday, April 16, at 9AM, we will be open 7 days a week from 9AM - midnight. Classes begin then as well. Choose from more than 100 different classes and sign up here. If you have any questions, please call the front desk at (703) 302-8780 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
