Open Bench Project: Portland
Our makerspace provides members with access to studio/work space, tools and community, as well as discounts on classes and supplies. We help people bring their ideas into reality by encouraging critical thinking and fostering confidence in a curious, supportive environment. Become a member today.
- Allow yourself to be a beginner, no one starts off excellent.
- Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
- Greatness does not come with permission.
