TechShop Detroit

TechShop Detroit recently opened its doors and on Sunday they held a tour and meet-up for Detroit-area crafters and Etsy sellers.

If you haven’t heard of TechShop, it’s a place where you can purchase a membership to gain access to their many tools and machines, as well as lessons in how to use them. Their equipment includes industrial sewing machines, a wood shop, welding equipment, glass cutters, machines for plastics, and a screen printing area. Basically, you could build pretty much anything there.

The TechShop website describes themselves “like a fitness club, but with tools and equipment instead of exercise equipment. It is sort of like a Kinko’s for makers, or a Xerox PARC for the rest of us… TechShop is designed for everyone, regardless of their skill level.”

Here are some of the goodies you can find at TechShop:
