Access Training at MADE Makerspace in St. Louis

At MADE, safety comes first. Our makerspace is supported by its community of competent and passionate members. In our Access Training classes, you will learn how to use MADE’s equipment safely, effectively, and gain comprehensive knowledge on its basic use. And you don’t even have to be a member to take them!

MADE also provides a plethora of software training opportunities. Our software is available to help you start your project digitally, and utilize the range of CNC equipment MADE has to offer.

Maybe you just need a quick refresher to show us you’re already a wiz at woodworking. Maybe you need in-depth instruction on the welders at a pace that fits your learning. You do not have to be a member to sign up for Access Training at MADE. All Access Training sessions are one-on-one, and can be as long or as short as your experience requires, billed at $50/hr.

Access Training is required if you plan to use equipment at MADE as a future or current member.
