What we're about
Reforge Charleston is an education based, non-profit makerspace. We provide a facility for people to utilize tools and equipment, take classes and attend events for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) awareness. We promote technological literacy in the community with an inclusive approach that seeks to engage all ages, skill levels, and cultural backgrounds.
Our makerspace is a unique place where technical knowledge, specialized equipment, and cooperation drive creation. Anyone in our community with the desire to learn and the daring to create, is welcome to visit our space and share in the discovery of new skills, creativity and knowledge.
A more complete description of our organization is on our Reforge website (http://www.reforge.io/). Also spend a few minutes exploring about us on our wiki (http://www.reforge.io/wiki/index.php?title=Reforge_Charleston) where we lay it all out for everyone to examine.
After this if Reforge looks like a place for you to build, learn, teach, tinker and create, then please check out our Meetup calendar for an Open House. We enjoy having visitors and are a very dynamic space with a lot of different things going on throughout the week. If you are interested in something specific our suggestion would be to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interests and we will connect you with one of our creators that can show you around. If you would rather speak with us directly, our phone number is (843) 900-MAKE (6253). Don't forget you can always sign up for a class, too.
Our paid members get full access to the space and tools as well as discounts on classes. If you are interested in joining please go here (https://reforgechs.silkstart.com/join), We also ask when you desire to attend a class that you RSVP here on Meetup then follow the link in the class description to our SilkStart payment portal where you purchase a ticket. This applies even to free classes for members.
So, come on by or keep checking in on us here. We always are generating a full schedule of varied classes. We are also rolling out a number of charitable programs including for kids, community access, scholarships, mentored job exposures and eventually, festivals. We would love your input, help, and fellowship with all of our activities. So don your leather apron and come on by!
