Use Our Tools & Space

Membership to the Asylum grants you access to our facility & shared equipment.

  • We offer two basic types of membership, monthly and daily.
  • All membership types grant you access to all of the equipment – but you have to be trained or at least tested on the equipment by our staff or instructors before you can use it.
  • Memberships are only available to adults 18 and up.
  • You can sign up and pay for membership in person at the Asylum any time during staffed hours.
  • If you are an experience tool user and just need to test out on tools to be able to use them as a member, you can find information and a testing calendar here.
  • To learn how to use our tools, check out our currently available classes and trainings.
  • Monthly members may rent storage and workspace, as the specific membership allows.


Monthly Memberships

Great for artists, hobbyists, small businesses, and start-ups! Choose from a variety of access times. Storage space can be rented for an additional cost, and most memberships also allow you to rent your very own workshop space.

Institutional memberships are available to companies that would like to provide their employees with access to our tools, either as a benefit, or in support of their own mission. Access cards can be used by anyone the member institution wishes; unlike our individual memberships, they do not have to be linked to one specific person.

Subsidized memberships (discounted 20%) are available to students, the unemployed, and others with demonstrated financial need.
