First doors, now lights!

Phoenix Forge Update

First doors, now light! Below are the latest photos of construction progress. Take a look as we get closer to opening later this Fall.

As it turns out, we have really nice floors under the decades of dust. We discovered this when the floors were polished this week. You can see the difference!

We hit a major milestone last week when the building power was turned on. We’re now using our own finished lighting to continue our preparations.

You can also see some new shelving going up in the Textile area.

Maker Kits Coming this Fall

As we navigate through COVID-19, our team has been hard at work developing maker kits that can be used at home. Some will be easy, while others will involve 3D design and modeling prior to fabrication. Keep a lookout for more details about these exciting maker kits that will be available for purchase (or included with your Phoenix Forge membership in some cases). With each kit you will receive one-on-one help from our experts (in-person or by video conference). Get ready to learn and create in the comfort and safety of your own home.
