In our 14,000 square foot facility, high profile designers work alongside students, retirees share their knowledge with novice builders, and entrepreneurs collaborate with hobbyists.
This unpaid position requires two four (4) hour shifts per week for a total of eight (8) hours per week. In exchange for your time, you will receive unlimited shop access during regular business hours and free classes. If you’re only able to work 4 hours per week, your membership will be 50% off.

When no clerical work is available it’s acceptable to work on personal projects at the desk, so long as projects don’t interfere with the ability to offer assistance to customers.
We ask for a verbal 3 month agreement to this position. Though we would prefer to have our work/trade members to stick around for longer, we realize that life happens. Each work/trade member that works 6 months or more will receive 30% off any membership for one year after their work/trade membership has ended.
No working member is permitted to be under the influence or drugs or alcohol during his/her shift.
