If you haven’t been in to NextFab or if you haven’t been to NextFab’s North 4th Street location or if you are just looking for something fun to do in the fall and winter months, check out the Open Studio Night series at North Fourth!
NextFab North Fourth is NextFab’s newest location, a 4,000 square foot makerspace located at the corner of 4th and Thompson Street in the South Kensington neighborhood in Philadelphia. While North Fourth provides a lot of the access to professional staff and equipment that the Washington Avenue location is known for (it has a beautiful wood shop, a metal shop and an electronics and computer lab) it also has its own unique flavor and houses a beautiful new jewelery studio. The Open Studio Nights are a great way to get a look at the new facility if you haven’t already, meet some great people and get a little hands-on action with our machines. You’ll walk away with a smile and a nifty new #nextfabmade seasonal object!
Attendees will also receive a promo code for a $100 discount on a new membership!
