Have you outgrown your hobby workstation at home? Is your material storage starting to impact the rest of your space? Here at NextFab, you can build and store anything you can dream of.
We provide state-of-the-art tools, equipment, and training in all skill levels and departments. Our classes span the world of making, from 3D printing to laser cutting to textiles. Our goal is to help you bridge the gap between your current abilities and your dreams. NextFab classes and experts are here to help your passions and business grow, wherever your interests lie.
Whether you’re looking for shared workshop space, tools and machinery, or a nearby maker lab, NextFab has you covered. Maybe your home is no longer sufficient for your workload, or you don’t know where to store your projects. We have the space and support you need!
We believe that experiences are better in community—woodworking, shop classes, jewelry making—you name it. Humanity thrives on, connection, after all; why shouldn’t we approach making in the same way? We designed our environment to spark collaboration because innovation and passion don’t just happen in a vacuum. After all, we’re just a building with tools without our makers.
No matter what you’d like to create, NextFab has the support you need. Our collaborative group of members means inspiration is always around the corner. NextFab will transform the way you make. Every level of membership grants unlimited access to our studios, an impressive tool and machine catalog, our entire class list, our network of members, as well as our recommended suppliers and vendors.
If you are a Philadelphia local in search of a studio, woodshop, or machine workshop near you, we hope to see you in one of our makerspaces soon!
