Members of Artisan’s Asylum enjoy access to unparalleled design and fabrication facilities within a creative learning community – all under one, big 42,000 SF roof! Of course, there are some limitations. New members should be prepared to join a new member orientation as well as get trained or tested out on our tools before you get to work.
All new members must participate in a new member orientation. Orientations are typically every other Tuesday, from 6-8PM. Find a date and sign up here.
Artisan’s works to keep membership affordable; to do so we make access available nearly “on-demand.” Purchase a membership at the level you’re most likely to put to use. (For “Day Passes,” please scroll down).

* Family Membership
Because making can be better with others, we welcome two life partners with (or without!) your well-behaved children. Each family member under 18 must always be accompanied by one or more parent; all tools are to be used by minors under careful parental supervision. Some tools and equipment are strictly off-limits to children under 18 at all times.
** Small Company Membership
Because innovation never rests. Artisan’s offers 24/7 access for two employees and five (5) day passes each month for additional users. Additional employees can be added to the company account at a rate of $130 per employee. Day pass registration fees are waived.
Day pass packages are great for short term projects on your own or working collaboratively in our shops. Each pass is single use and provides access during staffed hours for 24 hours from time of redemption. Use of Day Passes requires a one time $25 sign up fee. For our current staffed hourse, please see the Hours and Directions Page. ** Please note: New Day Pass users should be prepared to join a new member orientation as well as get trained or tested out on our tools before you get to work.
|Day Pass 5-Pack||$95||None|
|Day Pass 10-Pack||$180||None|
Monthly membership is not required to purchase day passes, and day passes do not grant membership access or benefits. Day Pass packages expire 7 years after the purchase date and are non-transferable.
Thanks to the generosity of our members, 25 and 50 percent scholarships towards membership are available to working artists, elder citizens, students, the unemployed, those adversely impacts by Covid-19 and anyone else with demonstrated financial need. Certain restrictions apply. Submit your application for a 3- or 6-month scholarship here.
Please allow at least 2-4 weeks for our member-led scholarship team to review and respond to your request. In the meantime, send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
