WHAT IS Y.M.S.?
Yakima Maker Space is a community of people just like you. We are: artists, makers, hackers, entrepreneurs, educators and craft enthusiasts with various interests and skills.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Y.M.S. provides the space, the tools and the community for you to create, collaborate and educate. You provide the ideas and the materials, and your monthly dues cover access to the space and the tools. All of the skills needed to operate any of the equipment in Yakima Maker Space can be acquired by participating in one of our many classes or workshops.
Most of our tools are available to use as soon as your membership begins. However, some tools require sign-off before you may use them including: the table saw, miter saw, CNC router table, and wood lathe for example. We have wood shop orientations every other Monday. The ceramics area also requires orientation from one of the instructor before you can begin.
Once you have set up your account (online) you can come down to YMS on a Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm and a volunteer will review your account, give you an orientation, and get your keys ready. If Saturdays does not work you can schedule an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
