Apply today for 2024-2025 residencies in ceramics and woodworking

For nearly 80 years, Sawtooth has been a creative hub for the region—an energetic craft school environment in downtown Winston-Salem, NC. Our year-long Artist-in-Residence programs encourage the development of new skills, connections, and bodies of work while assisting with studio operations.

Ceramic Residents, 2 in wood firing and 1 in electric/gas firing, are given 24/7 access to studio space, materials at cost, free firings, and the opportunity to teach, inspire, and energize our community.

Our Gondring Resident in Woodworking will receive round-the-clock access to Wood and Lathe studios, a semi-private studio space, and a $3,000 stipend in exchange for working several hours per week.

Residents are chosen by the Studio Directors, along with a rotating jury. Applicants are evaluated based on the quality of their work, their dedication to their craft, and their willingness to bring fresh perspectives to the creative community at Sawtooth. 

Applications are due May 15, 2024. The residencies will start August 1, 2024, and end July 31, 2025.
