Who's it for?
Members of Forge Greensboro range from entrepreneurs and trade students, to hobbyists and curious tinkerers. Anyone who enjoys learning new skills and meeting out of the box thinkers is a welcome candidate for membership.
What problem does it solve?
Tools, equipment, and technology can be very expensive for an individual to purchase and maintain. Thus, many are discouraged from pursuing their creative and inventive ideas, or from experiencing a trade skill, or from pursuing entrepreneurship.
How does it help?
By sharing the costs of tools, equipment, and technology as a low monthly fee with other members, Forge members enjoy access to a facility with the tools they need for a business, prototype, experience, or hobby.
Membership provides 24/7 access to a facility with 3d printers, laser engravers/cutters, woodshop, metalshop, welding, machining, sewing machines, ceramics wheels and kilns, electronic soldering and testing tools, and spaces to meet and gather. Membership is the Forge's core program. Our core goal is to provide affordable access to tools and technology, so anyone can express themselves through the act of making.
