We’re a whole new kind of makerspace!
Metrix exists to encourage creative ventures at a grassroots level and support curious minds, entrepreneurs, local businesses, and small batch manufacturing. It is our hope that by offering experience, equipment, and expertise in “making” across the fields of art/design/technology we can help to minimize the intimidation that comes with starting a project, realizing a product, learning new tools and programs, or pursuing DIY solutions to everyday problems.
There’s no shortage of history here,
and we’re certainly proud of it. After seven amazing years in the business of making, we’ve learned a thing or two about sustainability.
As of October 2016, we are focusing our resources on design, fabrication, consultation, and workshops. We are no longer offering an open lab work space, and we do not provide tools for rental/check-out or in-store use. Consultations are by appointment only, and walk-in customers can stop in any time during normal business hours to pick up/drop off projects and materials (and check out our various curiosities for retail).
To friends of our shop, both old and new, we are so thankful for all the collaborative spirits and boundless curiosity that keeps this shop alive. We hope you will join us in our enthusiasm for this new phase and we appreciate your continued support. Change is difficult, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused regarding our previous business model. Remember, as a patron of a small business, that your words are a million times as effective on such a small scale. Our shop is our livelihood and, more importantly, our passion. That being said, we appreciate all feedback given in good will and we are continuing to grow and improve every day!
