What is the Curious Forge?

The Curious Forge Art Center and Makerspace is the largest creative center in our region. We have filled our 20,000+ sq/ft space with 15 professional studios, where members have access to training and a wide variety of over $400,000 in equipment from traditional to advanced. Most of all we are a community of newbies, builders, tinkerers, artists and professionals who love to make. Think of it as a artistic, technical and industrial playground. We provide access, instruction and a creative community for people to explore new disciplines or dig deep into their existing one. We are active in our community supporting non-profits, hosting summer camps and many ways for our community come together and  to become more resilient. We are  located at 13024 Bitney Springs Rd in Nevada City, California. The Curious Forge’s sister nonprofit, Forging Nevada County Forward,  focuses on youth programs, other nonprofit support and vocational programs.
