about workshop

Located in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, Workshop Residence engages the worlds of craft, art, and design. We collaborate with artists and designers, supporting materials exploration, design, and fabrication. Together, we partner with local manufacturers to create functional objects for everyday living. We work with emerging and established artists and designers from all over the world, inviting our collaborators to share about their projects through workshops, talks, and events.
