Haystack's Open Studio Residency is a new program that provides two weeks of studio time and an opportunity to work in a supportive community of makers. The program accommodates approximately fifty participants—from the craft field and other creative disciplines—who will have uninterrupted time to work in six studios (ceramics, fiber, graphics, iron, jewelry, and wood) to develop ideas and experiment in various media. Participants can choose to work in one particular studio or move among studios depending on the nature of their work. All of the studios will be staffed by technicians who can assist with projects. Please note that technicians will not be leading workshops. If you are interested in learning specific skills, you may want to apply to one of our workshops.

Haystack’s open studios and small scale foster a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers. Haystack’s fab lab will also be open, providing an opportunity for experimentation with digital fabrication as a way for residents to augment and complement their creative practices.

In addition to open studios, there is time for participants to share work and discuss ideas across disciplines. Residents include established and emerging artists working in a range of visual art and craft media. In addition, Haystack will invite a smaller group of scientists, designers, and writers.

Haystack's 2014 Open Studio Residency is supported by a grant from an anonymous foundation.

Haystack's retreat setting is an ideal environment for extended time and space to work, collaborate, and explore.
