Full Service is an artist-run, 1,500 square foot custom fabrication shop located in Mid-City, Los Angeles, founded and operated by Casey Baden. Our goal at Full Service is to bring a range of original projects for artists and creatives to fruition, and to provide services for those who may not have access to the equipment needed to fully realize aspects of their artistic practice. With our wide-ranging skill sets, we can provide the necessary services, designs, and support to ensure the best, most considered results for your vision.
We promise to provide a comprehensive, “full service” experience for the development of your project from conception to installation, and to help you navigate the infrastructure around artistic practice and pursuing exhibition.
