The Workshop Residence engages the worlds of craft, art, and design by pairing visiting artists and designers with local fabricators to create beautiful, useful and affordable objects.
Located in the Dogpatch, an historic art and light-manufacturing district in San Francisco, we provide residents with a large studio/workshop, an adjacent apartment, living stipend, production budget, and a dedicated creative and logistical staff to facilitate their project.
