Become a member of our community

Our members have access to an unparalleled variety of design and fabrication facilities within a creative learning community all under one roof.

Membership to Artisan’s Asylum not only grants you access to our facility and all shared equipment but also opens you to an incredible community of artists, makers, and innovators. This is the place to be if you want to work near people creating steel sculptures, building giant (or tiny) robots, preparing an interactive public art installation or 3D printing jewelry to be cast in metal.
