Inventory of Equipment

Artisan’s Asylum Shops and Equipment are available to members and day pass users once you have joined and booked the needed tools in our booking system.

This brief list of our tools and equipment can help you to identify what you might need access to before starting your membership. Our inventory is constantly growing so visit our wiki for a more detailed listing of our facilities’ capabilities.

To use our tools independently as a member or day pass user, you must demonstrate competent and safe use of the equipment to one of our trained instructors or take one of our training sessions or classes.
