Artisans Asylum is a singular environment for making. We are a 52,500 sq/ft fabrication wonderland where imagination comes alive. We foster the conditions for freedom of thought, collaboration, and agency necessary for anyone to build the things people get passionate about. We are Boston's largest, most inclusive, and most vibrant space for sharing creativity and making dreams come alive. Our two-building campus includes individual studios, shared workshops, and common spaces. As Artisans Asylum celebrates 10 years of making, we are poised for inclusion and growth. Our new location in Allston-Brighton has increased our capacity from 42,000 sq/ft to 54,000 sq/ft.
Our many classes, workshops, social events, and activities connect you with others, as well as a wide range of community service and engagement opportunities. Members are the life-giving force of our organization; it is the passionate, cooperative nature of how we work that turns ideas into reality.
Artisans offers 30+ classes each month across disciplines, from electronics to
woodworking, jewelry making to metal smithing, and more. Classes are open to the public and class income is shared between Artisans and instructors.
Making is a voluntary act of ingenuity and agency. When we make—as artists, engineers, and hobbyists—we transform bits and atoms into the stuff of dreams and livelihoods. Sometimes we make the world a better place. We nearly always improve ourselves along the way. An investment in the teaching, practice and culture of making is a recognition of the fundamental human impulse to create and to solve problems. And the benefits are many, including emotional, intellectual and social resilience.
