A tour of Artisan’s Asylum showcases all of our 14 unique shop areas and the stories of our makers working in our 160 studio spaces. Our tours last about 30-45 minutes and are offered at scheduled times. We are a light industrial space and due to liability and insurance requirements we are unable to allow drop-in visitors to our facility. Tours are offered daily. For the tour schedule see Staffed Hours & Tour Times here.

Artisan’s Asylum hosts a regular Speaker Series featuring the stories of our own members and local community leaders and businesses inspiring us by making the world they want to see. Speaker Series events are free for members and Friends of Artisan’s. $10 suggested donation from the public.
