Residencies

Mudflat is thrilled to offer two unique residency programs for professional artists seeking to work in our community clay studio. Our year-long residency program has been running since 1996 and provides artists a private studio space at no cost, access to Mudflat's facilities, a monthly materials stipend, a monthly housing stipend, and opportunities to teach and sell their work. Additionally, we offer a short-term residency program each summer for artists of color. Residents can propose their use of the program, such as developing teaching experience, creating a solo show hosted by Mudflat, or dedicating time to creating a body of work. This residency also includes a monthly materials stipend and montly housing stipend and access to Mudflat's facilities. Consider applying to one of these great residency opportunities!

Studio Rentals 

Mudflat is home to a community of 38 ceramic artists who work in private or semi-private studios, creating a diverse range of functional and sculptural pieces.  In our facility, Mudflat has expanded our studio artist program to include more clay artists in a broader range of studio spaces and at a variety of prices. We now have two types of artist categories: Resident Artists and Associate Artists. Resident Artists are professional clay artists who have the technical skill and experience to fire their own work in the studio kilns.Associate Artists are serious clay students looking for more access, privacy, and shelf space. There are two large group studios of approximately 300 square feet each to be shared by six artists each. These studios are equipped with a shelving unit for each artist plus a central shared work table and shared pottery wheel in each studio room. Both Resident Artists and Associate Artists have 24-hour studio availability, and use of other studio and classroom equipment. If you're an artist looking for studio space, we have an interest list that you can join be notified about any openings. While we can't guarantee when space will become available, we would be happy to keep you informed. Email kate@mudflat.org to be added to the interest list.
