Residents should come equipped with professional experience and purpose.  We understand that every person and project is unique, we can tailor a live/work scenario to your needs, whether that means equipping you with a quiet space to write, a furniture work space with weekly production sessions with our craftspeople, or a clean design studio, we are happy to explore your needs.

At a basic level we provide personal living and working accommodations, with 3 meals a day provided.  As we tailor your Residency Program to your project needs, for example if you want to have a welding technician work with you twice a week, or you want to have weekly drumming classes, additional costs may be added.  

If you specifically want to work on a developing a product for manufacturing with us, please share your idea, quantities, deadlines, & any design/materials needs.  We would be happy to host you for a prototyping workshop to develop your ideas.
