A tour of Artisan’s Asylum showcases all of our 14 unique shop areas along with 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. For the tour schedule see Staffed Hours & Tour Times page 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. Check out the Spring 2016 line-up!
Co-hosted with Miranda’s Hearth
Every third Monday, starting May 16, we’ll meet from 7:00-9:00 in the social space at Artisan’s Asylum for Maker Mondays.
Bring your latest project, the old project you’ve been ignoring for the past several months, or a brand new idea. We’ll have a small collection of materials if you just want to come and play. Everyone is welcome!
At Miranda’s Hearth, we believe that when we make things together we are creating the common shared experiences that provide the foundation for real relationships.
So come and create with us! If you feel like you can’t come because you’re not an artist, remember the Hearth Motto: Don’t Make Art, Just Make Something. Registration and check-in handled at our Front Desk.
