Please note that as of May 2022, Fab Lab Tulsa has opened its newly constructed lab facility: Hardesty Hub for Makers. Available membership plans and plan features will be initially limited but gradually expanded as additional machinery and rooms are activated over the course of 2022. We appreciate your understanding as we work diligently to make our full lab capabilities available to the Tulsa community. View Fab Lab Tulsa's Equipment Page to see its available fabrication machinery per room.
Fab Lab Tulsa offers a variety of new membership plans tailored for different project interests, project needs, and project durations. We offer short-term (Gateway) intermediate-term (Tinker), and long-term (Maker) membership plans which are further partitioned into different rooms (Studio, Wood Lab, and Metal Lab) and machine suites. Please review the membership plan summary table and feature tables below to find the membership plan that best suits you.
