If you caught yesterday’s post about ADX, you’re familiar with this awesome workspace. If not, I’ll catch you up to speed. It’s a 12,000 square foot facility filled with tools, space to work, and other like-minded folks. Kelley Roy is the mastermind behind this great idea. Through your ADX membership, you suddenly have a wealth of tools at your fingertips. If you’re not quite the pro, don’t sweat it. Take a class or get help from the staff. Surrounding yourself with creative people and those you can learn from keeps the creative juices flowing. Check out Kelley’s work gear as she shows us around the metal shop: Carhartt Women’s Minot Shirt, Women’s Clarkston Cami Tank, Women’s Relaxed Fit Canvas Kane Dungaree.
ADX in Portland is a makers’ dream. It’s a 12,000 square foot facility filled with tools, space to work, and other like-minded folks. There’s a wood shop, metal shop, factory floor, and design lab; all equipped for pretty much anything you can dream up. All you have to do is get a membership, much like you would at the gym. That membership gives you access to the space, help from the staff, and the chance to sign up for on site classes. And when you need to a break or a caffeine fix, head on over the the cafe for a pick me up.
