Co-working

MEMBERSHIPS.

You’ll get an access card so you can enter whenever you want, you’ll get a storage box, hi-speed internet connection, you can book the two meeting rooms for free.

Oh, and yeah! If you’re a nomad, a freelancer or a workoholic working in coffee shops, drop in our Quiet co-working space inside MATER Library. You’ll get a plug and wi-fi. And a lot of inspiration from all those new and interesting materials.

Here, you can be connected to the community but still have some privacy for when you need to discuss top-secret stuff with your team.

I have a lot of questions!

Here are the most FAQ:

1. LOCATION and SPACE

WHERE CAN I FIND YOU? HOW CAN I GET THERE?

The exact address is Splaiul Unirii 160.

You can reach us by metro or bus. The nearest metro station is Timpuri Noi – exit towards Calea Văcărești. The nearest bus stops are at Tineretului Boulevard or Mihai Bravu Boulevard. Most simply, you can follow the scheme here.

When you arrive at the address, you will see an industrial building. The building is part of the Cotton Industry Complex. When you see yellow stairs, you’ve arrived at MATER – the materials library and at Nod co-working spaces. On the 2nd floor, you’ll reach Nod makerspace. On the top floor, you get to Deschis Gastrobar, where you can see the entire cotton industry and you can enjoy the beautiful city on the banks of Dâmbovița.

CAN I VISIT THE SPACE?

If you want to visit us, you can make an appointment at least 24 hours prior, at contact@nodmakerspace.ro. That way, the Nod team can provide you with a guide to lead you through all the spaces and show you the tools and equipment available.

Otherwise, if you know a member, you can come visit us anytime. S/He will pick you up at the reception where you will be given a badge, which you’ll have to wear inside.

2. MEMBERSHIPS

I WANT TO JOIN THE COMMUNITY. HOW DO I REGISTER?

The best option to get involved in the community is to become a member. Make a monthly subscription, come in and make your ideas happen. Here are the types of subscriptions. If you have questions do not hesitate to contact us.

HOW CAN I RENT A STUDIO OR A DESK JUST FOR MYSELF?

If you want to have a fixed table, where you can leave a monitor, a flower or anything else, you can make any subscription and add a fixed table. For any other colleague in your team, joining at the same table means a half price for him. Fixed tables will be marked with a red dot.

If you want a studio, you can do it in the same way as a fixed table. The studio is available for a minimum of two members with any of the Nod subscriptions. Other teammates who join have a 50% discount on their subscription.

These subscription policies aim to encourage teamwork, because it’s simpler, more effective for projects and often a team finds the best solution easier.

ARE THERE SHORTER SUBSCRIPTIONS, FOR A FEW DAYS?

If you don’t need a full monthly membership, you can choose a special one (project or part time).

CAN I STAY OVER NIGHT?

If you have any monthly subscription, you can use the space 24/7.

If you have another type of shorter subscription, the program is standard – 10:00 to 19:00

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE FOR SOMEONE WHO GETS A SUBSCRIPTION?

There is no minimum age to become a member of Nod community.

However, in order to use the space and equipment unaccompanied you must be at least 14 of age. Children under 14 years can take tours or classes for the use of equipment, and if they want to spend time in the makerspace they must be accompanied by an adult.

3. COURSES and TRAININGS

DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN COURSES?

You don’t have to be a member to attend courses. You only have to register here cursuri@nodmakerspace.ro.

WHAT KIND OF COURSES ARE AVAILABLE? CAN I PARTICIPATE IF I’M ONLY A BEGINNER?

Most of our courses are introductory. You can see the full list of courses here.

I KNOW HOW TO DO ONE THING VERY WELL. CAN I COME AND TEACH A CLASS?

Sure, if you want to keep a course in an area complementary or adjacent to Nod activity, we are happy to host you. We provide a classroom of 30sqm for 10-15 people and an area of 450 sqm which can be used also.

For information, suggestions or questions, write us on cursuri@nodmakerspace.ro.

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN COURSES?

Most of the courses are aimed towards adults and young adults.

For children between 6 and 14 years old, we have a 100sqm workshop, DIY taking place in spaces designed especially for children. The workshop is organized by the Eematico team and consists of thematic workshops where children develop and build individual and team projects, with manual and electric tools under the guidance of trainers.

4. TOOLS, EQUIPMENT and STORAGE

WHAT ARE THE FACILITIES OF THE MAKERSPACE?

The facilities of the makerspace are written here.

CAN I USE THE EQUIPMENT WITHOUT TAKING THE COURSES? IF I KNOW HOW TO USE THE TOOLS DO I STILL HAVE TO PARTICIPATE ON THE INTRODUCTORY COURSES?

Unfortunately, you can not use any equipment or space (wood / metal workshop) without doing a training course. You can schedule it depending on the availability of the tutor and then the course will be held especially for you. It takes 2-4 hours depending on the complexity. After the course,  you must prove you have learned. You can find the complete list of training courses here.

If you know how to use the equipment you need, you must show us before you use it, settings differ from one tool to another.

CAN I BRING MY OWN MATERIALS OR DO I HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM NOD’S STORE?

You can bring your own material or you can buy it from the Nod store. Nod shop has the price of materials similar to any store’s, so it can be more convenient to buy them here, therefore you won’t have to transport the materials. We start with a basic stock, and as we know the members and their needs, we will update the material stocks.

CAN I LEAVE MY THINGS OVER NIGHT?

Each resident member has one Nod locker/storage space, key, regardless of their subscription. The size of a closet is 40x80x90 cm or 40x80x60 cm. It’s safe to leave your things here.

If you have your own private studio, you can leave things however you want.

If you have a fixed table, you can leave your computer, a plant and other things that make you feel at home.

5. SERVICES

CAN SOMEONE HELP ME USE A PIECE OF EQUIPMENT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE?

You can schedule it depending on the availability of the tutor and then the course will be held especially for you. It takes 2-3 hours depending on the complexity then you must show you have learned.
