We have several mailing lists to facilitate communications between the general public, our members, knowledgeable people at the Asylum, and staff. Some lists are restricted to members or staff only and require moderator approval.

Important resources:

Public Mailing Lists

  • Announce subscribe to hear about upcoming classes & events at Artisan's.
  • Discuss - A great list to post all technical inquiries and all “can you help me or teach me?” and “what do you guys think of this?” questions. Goes to a distribution list of members of the Artisan’s Asylum and our extended community of makers. You must subscribe to this list to participate in the discussion.
  • Have it Made Requests for requests for custom paid design and fabrication work to be done by Artisan's members. Goes to a distribution list of interested professionals. Anyone is welcome to post requests to this list by emailing No subscription is required. Note that we do not operate as a job shop here at the Asylum, but we do have a number of members who run jobs out of the space. Artisan’s Asylum will make no recommendations and takes no responsibility for the quality of work arranged through the have-it-made list — we are simply facilitating communication.
