Creatives in Calgary will have an entirely new workshop come January.

Fuse33, a maker space set to open on January 2, 2018, is a 5,400 sq ft warehouse home to a wide array of tools being made available to anyone with a creative spark.

The space – located at 1720 Radisson Drive SE – will house 3D printers, industrial sewing machines, metal and woodworking shops, laser cutters, to name only a few.

Calgarians can sign up for memberships (ranging from $60 to $130 per month), or use the space on a drop-in basis by paying a daily rate of $15.

Classes will also be offered for anyone looking to learn some new skills or brush up on anything they might have forgotten from high school wood shop.

If you’re hoping to use any of Fuse33’s heavy duty equipment – or to just gain access to certain shops – certification in these classes are an informative necessity.

But really, who wouldn’t want to learn how to use a laser cutter?

Their website only currenlty shows certification classes, but promises that maker and workshop classes are in the works.

So whether you’re hoping to create your next sculpted masterpiece, or you just need to stop by to use a specific tool that you can’t find in your mess of a garage, Fuse33 will be open on January 2 to help you out.
