Funded Artist Residencies

Through the incredible generosity of the Maxwell/Hanrahan Foundation, Peters Valley School of Craft is excited to offer fully funded guest artist residencies for November of 2024! A limited number of artists will be selected to spend either two weeks or one month each in our fully equipped surface design and/or weaving studio immersing themselves in time dedicated to their craft.

Two week residencies will take place November 5-18, 2024 and full month residencies will run November 1-30, 2024. This program is open to all artists, from emerging to professional however you must have experience with the tools and equipment and be able to work independently. Due to the rural nature of our campus, a personal vehicle is required.

A private room in a fully furnished shared house and unlimited access to a fully equipped studio (all utilities included) will be provided at no cost to the artist. This residency opportunity also pays the artist a stipend of $500 for two-week long residencies and $1,000 for month-long residencies to help off-set the costs of materials and travel. The acquisition of all materials and supplies are the responsibility of the artist. Guest artists are responsible for providing their own meals and a full kitchen is available for use in the house.

Deadline to apply for this program is July 1st. Applications will be accepted through the Submittable platform and a $10 application fee will be charged.


Date(s): 11/01/2024 to 11/30/2024
