Residency Rosendale, New York

Artist’s Book Grant


The Artist’s Book Grant is a six- to eight-week residency for artists to produce a limited edition book work at Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York. Working intensively in our studios, artists print and bind their own books, and are encouraged to create an edition size no larger than 100 and no smaller than 50.


Artists with a developed idea for a book work to be produced during the residency


The grant includes a stipend of $350/week, up to $750 for materials, up to $250 for travel within the Continental US, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. WSW can provide technical advice; training on new equipment, techniques, and materials; and production assistance.


All applications must be physically mailed and postmarked by November 15 to:
