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
Residencies engage new and traditional technologies, consider a wide
spectrum of materials, and explore these ideas through collaboration
with local creative communities and businesses. We host public
workshops, and launch each residency with a gallery exhibition.
Products are sold through the gallery, as well as online and select
retail partners. Local production supports Bay Area small businesses,
and profit from sales is split with the resident.
Residencies range from six weeks to two months, with eight distinct approaches per year.
