News: COVID-19 Update – No Public Access

Due to increasing concerns about the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to close the Industries to the public effective immediately and until further notice.

Workshops through April (for now) will be rescheduled to a later date. For more information or to request a refund contact our Education Manager, funmi:

Current members, volunteer hour requirements will be waived, however we really appreciate anyone who is able to help out remotely by translating communications/educational and membership documents into Spanish and/or creating Easy-English versions. You may also request a temporary member dues payment suspension. Contact our Community Membership Manager, Nafis, for specifics on either:

If you are a key holder you may still access the Industries. However, if you are not feeling well, please for the health and safety of your fellow members, please do not use the space. We also ask that you use the booking calendar to book all time you are spending in the space. If you are not using a particular piece of equipment, please still make a reservation for a co-working spaces or shop lead resource. The full names of all guests (no more than 3) must also be listed in the description of your reservation. Basically, we need to know who is in the space at all times. If you are in the space and not in the reservation calendar we will revoke your key privileges. If you are in the space you must wash your hands minimally upon entering and wipe down equipment and surfaces with disinfectant. Disinfectant is being kept by the office door in the clean room.

Stay healthy, make art (maybe just at home) and spread the love (not germs). Don’t forget about being in community with one another. Let’s just get creative about it! **Image credit: Member Ryan Dean

We will keep you updated as things unfold. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns or need support. Staff will be available remotely throughout the week:

With Love,
