Conceive! Collaborate! Create! ...Curious?

Do you like making stuff? Wish you could make more and collaborate with other people?

The Curious Forge is a Maker Space… it’s a place for creativity to come out and play, to learn new skills, and to make the things you’ve dreamed of making.

Located in Grass Valley, CA, we have a 3000 sq/ft physical space that houses equipment and tools for everything from metal and wood working to sewing and textiles. We host workshops to make projects and learn about the tools. The Forge is a members-based, nonprofit organization, and every member helps make it happen.

The only way to get a full sense of the Curious Forge is to come visit. We have an Open House the first Thursday of every month. So you can check it out for yourself.
