The Workshop Residence invites local and international makers, designers and crafts persons to produce artful and useful items. Collaborations with the San Francisco Bay Area’s diverse community of manufacturers are encouraged and facilitated.
A network of retail and production facilities will be made available to residents, enhancing the creative process and encouraging residents to work both within and outside the scope of their existing practices.
Each residency results in products made and sold through the Workshop Residence. Makers will produce limited editions for sale through WORKSHOP RESIDENCE, local retail partner including MAC and The Gardener, as well as wider distribution channels.
