Read on our local news link that the TechShop has filed for bankruptcy and closed all of its location doors across the country. They were a great source of tools for DIYers and offered some really nice classes. They also provided workshop space for people who didn't otherwise have a place to do their craft in this short-of-space area I live in. We took a few classes and had hubby had more free time on the weekend we would have taken more. The San Jose location while not super convenient for us was centrally located to a large population here in the south bay area. There were other locations across the country but the bay area was where it originated and had 3 locations. Everything from Electronics, 3D printing to more craft-type of classes. The foldable kyack that was featured on Shark Tank a number of years ago was fabricated there on their equipment from what I read.
