The Workshop Residence
833 22nd Street, San Francisco, CA 94107

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. 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.
