Support staff may be available to help with your project during Open Shop hours or by appointment.

  • For additional course mentoring or project support, schedule one-on-one instructor support. Fees are $60/hr; allow up to 72 hours to confirm your session.

Please note that due to the risks to health and safety presented in our shops, we are unable to accommodate visitors with woodworking skills until they have signed our Member Agreement and Release of Liability and Indemnification paperwork and authorized by a member of staff.

By appointment

* Closed Shop is for trained users to work independently. Staff are on-site; there is no volunteer steward on duty. Members must have completed a tool test to use equipment.
** Open Shop are hours with limited support by staff and volunteers; it is a time for members and students who need basic assistance, for example finding tools and supplies (not hands-on instruction) in the shop.
*** When HatchSpace is closed members with access codes may use the shop after hours only if you book your tool time online. We encourage you to share this information with other members to create an informal buddy system when you double up.


We are working to put together a mentoring program where more directed support is available. If you are interested in being a mentor, please email hello@hatchspace.org

Additional hours may be scheduled by appointment. Email hello@hatchspace.org for more information.
