AIR Tasja Keetman explored the sculptural qualities of handmade paper during her residency at WSW.

Women’s Studio Workshop offers a six to eight week studio residency grant to support an artist creating a new body of work in one of WSW’s studio disciplines – intaglio, hand papermaking, letterpress printing, silkscreen, book arts, and ceramics.

The grant includes a stipend of $350 per week, up to $500 toward materials used during the residency, travel costs up to $250 within the Continental US, housing, and unlimited studio use. Residency occurs 6-18 months after application. The artist will be provided with technical advice and assistance in production. WSW welcomes applications from artists in all stages of their careers. This Studio Residency Grant is a two-step juried process. WSW selects the artist, then sends their work to appropriate funders for final approval.
