Email Directory

Due to the high volume of email inquiries the Asylum receives on a daily basis, please read through the following options. All of the following are @artisansasylum.com.

Want to learn more about news, updates, and events?

Sign up for our monthly newsletter!

Want access to our tools, classes, and space?

  • front-desk@ For general information about our available programs, services, classes, events, and membership. If our front desk can’t answer your question right away, they’ll connect you to the person who can.
  • member-services@ For inquiries about studio and storage space rental, and other related questions.
  • facilities@ For inquiries about tools and equipment

Want help with a project or idea?

  • Discuss: For all technical inquiries and all “can you help me or teach me?” and “what do you guys think of this?” questions. Goes to a Google Group of members of the Artisan’s Asylum and our extended community of makers. You can ask to join the Google Group to post message and participate in the discussion.
  • Have it Made: For requests for custom paid design and fabrication work to be done by Artisan’s members. These requests go to a discussion list, and can be sent by e-mailing have-it-made@.  Note that we do not operate as a job shop here at the Asylum, but we do have a number of members who run jobs out of the space. Artisan’s Asylum will make no recommendations and takes no responsibility for the quality of work arranged through the have-it-made list — we are simply facilitating communication.
  • Make a Makerspace: Similar to Have it Made, we host an indexable archive and discussions over on our forums.

Want more information about us or how to get involved?

  • Our Announce Mailing List is the best place to hear about upcoming classes and events open to the public. Sign up to receive announcements here!
  • press@ For all press and media inquiries
  • donate@ For inquiries about donations and sponsorships
  • outreach@ For tour requests or partnerships, and information about our Corporate Associates program

Are you looking for the Google Groups or the Forums?
Artisan’s Asylum also hosts a forum to foster discussions, which you can sign up for at our forums here.  In addition, we have a number of Google Group based mailing lists, some of which you can join and some which are more technical; they’re all listed on our bookstack (wiki) here.
