Member Benefits

Flexibility

All of our memberships are month-to-month, allowing greater flexibility to work based on their needs. Some work intensely for a few months for a commission, once delivered they place their membership on hold. Others are more steadfast, looking for longer-term use to see multiple projects or a larger initiative through. From startups to artists and independent designers. We strive for flexibility as our aim is to build our business on the dedication to those creative people working through the early stages of their work.

Storage

Storage is available on a first-come-first-serve basis and is limited. We have smaller cubbies available in addition to larger scale storage for materials or larger built objects.

Simplicity

As a member at any level, you gain access to our entire workspace. From the design studio to the prototyping lab and the workshop. Our goal is not to charge you for every little thing, but instead easily enable you to drift from one area of the facility to another as the need arises.

Mentorship

Our staff of mentors are on-site during open hours, and are there to help you with your project. Support might come in the form of a simple brainstorm, instruction, problem solving, or simply directing you to a series of excellent youtube videos to get you through your project.

Community

At the core of Lost Arts is a group of brilliant, creative and driven people. This is our community. These are our members. We work hard to establish meaningful connections between members in support of their individual goals. Our community supports one another and seeks support from one another. They periodically collaborate and conspire, bringing new projects to life.

Member-priority Events

With our growing community of members and our 15,000 square foot event gallery, we host events each week, and many are member-only events.

We conspire
together.

We are a collective of creatives, bridging a wide range of skills, disciplines and perspectives. And together we work within the space we call Lost Arts.
