Find your Resources.

Making doesn’t stop when you walk out of our doors, so we’ve collected these additional resources to help you continue on your path to making. Whether you are looking for materials or services for a new project, need a refresher on something you learned in one of our classes, want to continue learning on your own, or interested in checking out other maker spaces in town, we have the resources you need to make it happen. 

Member Handbook

The Open Works Member Handbook is your guide to our rules and policies. Still have questions? Just swing by our front desk and one of our Member Services Associates will be happy to help you out.

Instruction Sheets


We’ve created a written guide to the information covered in each of our safety classes as a resource for continued learning and reference. Forgot yours at home? A longer version of these guides is collected in a binder on the back of the entrance door to each shop.
