POCOSIN ARTS STUDIOS 201
Earlier this year, Pocosin Arts was fortunate to secure a generous grant from the John and Robyn Horn Foundation. This grant has enabled us to completely outfit and update our wood shop. We were able to purchase all brand new equipment for our machine room and new benches, sharpening equipment, clamps, smaller handheld power tools, etc. for our bench room. This is the second summer workshop season we’ve been able to offer classes in our wood shop and we are so excited to bring more people and programming into the space.
We are currently in the unique position of searching for candidates to apply for our first ever woodworking artist residency program. The ideal residency term for the wood shop begins in January 2024 and ends in May 2024. Preference will be granted to artists capable of dedicating themselves to the full 5‑month period. Pocosin welcomes proposals for shorter durations as well.
We are also excited to host two resident artists specializing in ceramics and metals starting this September through May 2024. They will be participating in our 9‑month residency program.
Our residency programs include 24/7 access to all of our studios: metalsmithing, woodworking, and ceramics. You can find information about the equipment in our studios on our website. Residents receive free housing and utilities, access to shared kitchen and laundry facilities, and a personal workspace in their primary studio. They are compensated for teaching community classes and receive 70% on sales or commissions of their work through Pocosin’s gallery.
