More About Your Membership

One of the challenges that face makers, inventors, hobbyists, tinkerers, and artists is locating an area or space to create their projects. Ideally, it would have lots of equipment, supplies, and other individuals that share their interests to collaborate with and form a community. In the past, they would have to set up their own workshop or beg for space at a local machine shop or other woodworking shop. Now they can go and pursue their projects at the Franklin Center for Innovation, Inc. in Frankfort, Kentucky.

Franklin Center for Innovation, Inc. will provide its members with a huge variety of tools, machines, and equipment in a 7,200 square-foot workshop environment. The equipment at Franklin Center for Innovation, Inc. is not likely to appear in the hobbyist’s home workshop. The range of tools and equipment covers machining, sheet metal, rapid prototyping, CAD, CNC equipment, electronics, sewing, plastics, 3D Printing, Lasers and more.

Membership is modeled after a fitness center, and two levels of memberships are available including individual and family. The initial planned hours of operation for Franklin Center for Innovation, Inc. will be 10 AM to 10 PM, 6 days a week. The plan is to eventually be open 24/7.

One of the guiding principles of Franklin Center for Innovation, Inc. is to make it affordable and accessible to everyone. Monthly Memberships are priced at $35 for an individual pass (one person) or $55 for a family pass (four people).
