About The Workshop NOLA

Design, Build, and Create

The Workshop is a co-operative community wood and metal shop seeking to create a safe, affordable, and collaborative workspace to cultivate a collective of makers. We are queer operated and seek to open opportunity for builders of all identities. Flex your creativity and take pride in learning a new skill. 

The Workshop is located at the corner of Mazant and Marais in a warehouse building now inhabited by creatives and artists of all kinds. The Workshop is proud to occupy approximately 2,000 sqft along the right side of the building. As we add new skills, equipment, and members, we will adapt the space to suit.

Currently the space hosts these tools for communal use:

  • MIG Welder

  • Abrasives miter saw

  • Grinders

  • Welding table

  • Welding helmets and gloves

  • Table Saw

  • Planer

  • Jointer

  • Palm Router

  • Plunge Router

  • Router Table

  • Ample dust collection

  • Sliding miter saw

  • Drill press

  • Belt Sander

  • Air compressor

  • Brad Nailer

  • An assortment of power and hand tools

  • Not enough clamps

We are always accepting donations of both monetary value and tools. This is a cooperative space in which all funds are invested directly back into the upkeep of the shop. Tools are expensive and keeping prices low is important to us. Contact us about corporate sponsorship.
