Prototype: A Feminist Makerspace

Prototyping the kind of world we want to live in. Prototype was born from the idea that we are constantly prototyping the kind of world we want to live in. We see Prototype as a space where everyone is welcome to make things, fail quickly, and find the support to start all over again. Located in a warehouse in North Oakland, Prototype PGH is currently an entirely volunteer run organization with over 150 paying members. We provide access to high tech tools and equipment, offer workshops that prioritize the experiences of women, and cultivate a gender-inclusive professional support network. Membership costs $25 for 6 months or $50 for one year and includes weekly studio time, access to equipment, WIFI, and coffee as well as monthly lecture series and workshops. All genders and disciplines are welcome to join.
