ADX is turning 2!

May 14, 2013

It’s really hard to believe it’s been two years already.

In the two years since ADX’s launch, over 150 businesses have worked in or launched from the space, prototyping and developing 30 new products; while the in-house fabrication team has built over 200 projects for clients from Walnut Studiolo to Addidas. ADX has partnered with Supportland, Portland Made, F.H Steinbarts, the Museum of Contemporary Craft, and other local organizations and businesses. We received praise and support from Representative Blumenauer and Mayor Charlie Hales.

To celebrate, we’re having a two year anniversary bash at ADX, from noon to 10 pm on Saturday, June 1, at 417 SE 11th Ave in Portland.


You heard us, DOG WASH. What, you never been to a dog wash before? You haven’t lived.

Join us on the June 1st, and celebrate the wonderful community workshop that is ADX.

But wait! There’s more!

Because we’re so damn happy to be celebrating two years here, we’re offering two birthday promos: first,  full membership passes to ADX at 50% off. That’s right, 50% off all full membership shop passes until June 15th. Sign up whenever, and enjoy a month for half the price. Second, all intro-class participants between now and June 15th receive a free unlimited shop pass for one month. Come take an intro to metal, wood, MIG welding, or TIG welding, and get a free month long membership to put your newly acquired skills to use. All those projects you’ve been putting off tackling? Now’s the time. Send us an email at with the subject line “Two years in promo”, and include your name, address, contact info, and which class you’re interested in if applicable.

Get in here, and get to work!

See you all on June 1st.
