Info on PSG Charter Memberships
A lot of people have been asking for more details on the Charter Membership so here is some more info!
How does it work? Charter Memberships are being offered until we open. If you sign up with us now, you will get a Full Time Membership at the discounted rate of $100/month for the life of your membership. (The regular full time membership rate will be $225/month once we open.)
What does that mean? This allows you unlimited access to our woodworking, metalworking, mold making and casting shops during our proposed hours of operation, 11am-11pm, 7 days per week.
Am I locked into a contract? Nope. You can stop your membership at any time. The only thing is that if your membership lapses and you decide to rejoin later, you'll have to rejoin at the regular rate.
Well what about that safety training course? Charter members get the safety training course for free! (The safety training course is normally $50 and includes personal safety equipment.)
What if I'm a student? You get a 25% discount on our Charter Membership rate with a valid student ID. Your monthly rate will be $75/month until you graduate, then it will switch over to the regular Charter Member rate of $100/month.
What are some other benefits of being a Charter Member? Our Charter Members get a 10% discount on classes, lectures and storage, free entry into all juried shows, multiple member show opportunities per year, a 70/30 split for all gallery sales (60/40 for non-members), access to free workshops, links to your website on our blog/website, inclusion in our member artist registry, a members only newsletter and a built in community of awesome co-members.
What if I don't know how to use the equipment? We'll offer multiple opportunities for you to get comfortable on the equipment, starting with the safety training course. Shop monitors will always be there to guide you when questions come up or assistance is needed. Or if you think you just need more time, there will be low cost, small group lessons on wood and metal shop basics. Or if you'd like more one on one time, you can sign up for low cost personal training sessions. We want to make sure that everyone is comfortable on the equipment and using it properly, so we're always there if you need help!
Do I have to be a sculptor? Nope. Everyone and anyone is welcome...artists, crafters, makers, DIYers, hobbyists, and more. If you need a wood shop, metal shop or mold making and casting area to make whatever it is you make, or plan to make, come on down...
How do I sign up!?! Visit www.philadelphiasculpturegym.com and click on 'charter memberships' in the top toolbar to download the membership form.

All Charter Members signing up before May 1st will be included in our Charter Member Exhibition in the PSG Gallery! Drop off dates are May 5th/6th and the opening reception is Saturday, May 19th, 12-6pm, during the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby!
