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 grants access to our facility and all shared equipment and 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. We have monthly memberships, day pass packages and corporate options available.

For students, we have volunteer and internship opportunities in nearly every aspect of what we do – from the office to the studio floor. You all have the opportunity to earn service learning hours, professional development, and much more! Learn more here.
