We are offering six month residencies with complete FREE access to all our facilities including flat file storage, bench (wood/metalshop), and locker space to store your creative tools. Visit our Institute of Fabrefaction page to see a list of all our equipment. Our goal is to give artists the opportunity to expand his/her art practice by providing access to a variety of equipment in an inspiring and creative environment. Artists are encouraged to apply with a specific project. We also have housing available for an additional cost at The Hampton Art Manor just a few blocks away. Check the website for availability. Residencies are for 6 months and application deadlines are March 1st or September 1st, depending on which session is current. Two artists will be chosen for each session. Recipients of the residency will have full access to the facilities for six months with no additional fees and 24 hour access. Past residents are listed on our Artist Page.
