After touring old factories, our way took us to Rosenwerk Konglomerat, a not for profit, artists co-working space. Its memberships are separated into two possibilities: 24/7 access or 5 days a week access. They currently had 50 members that paid through their memberships for a large part of the expenses while the organisation is further assisted financially by donations and an Anstiftung.
What each membership gets one is access to all workshops, their equipment and materials, with the sole exception that sometimes one would have to pay for materials. Speaking of workshops, what they offer in their premises is: a repair-café for electronics, computer lab with varying sizes of printers, 3D printers, a laser workshop, a silk-screen printing workshop, a wood workshop plus graffiti experimentation grounds! They even do trainings on occasion for various topics such stitching, silk-screen printing etc.
For those interested in management issues and coordinating of space, they use Google Calendar for managing their room and machine bookings.
