Factur is many things. We are a classroom, both formal and informal. We are a workshop, a wood shop, a metalworking space, a craft space—or, as we like to call it: a fabrication laboratory. But, above all else, we are a community who values and stresses the importance of sharing with our neighbors.
Yes, our members and students learn from their peers and experts. They also learn from hands-on experiences. However, it doesn’t matter where you attain your knowledge, just how you apply it. Of course, we encourage you to give back, as well.
Discover ways to make great things. Then, make things greater. And, pass it on, so others can learn … to continue the cycle.
Learn. Create. Share.
As a non-profit organization, we always welcome various forms of contributions. Whether you would like to offer financial assistance or have tools you would like to give a loving home, we would be honored and humbled by your kindness.
Our volunteer member program is a really amazing way to learn new things and benefit not only our Factur community, but our local neighborhood, as well. We simply ask for a day of your week, in exchange for access to all Factur has to offer.
Have you heard of the WikiHouse or Shelter 2.0? Well, now you have! And, we’ve made some. Our Mayor and City Commissioner even came to check it out.
“Shelter 2.0 is about sharing designs and ideas, so that as a design community bound by no borders we can begin to change the way the world thinks about design, production and accessibility.”
