Blue Studio Residency

Blue Studio Residency is open to local, Australian and International ceramic artists of all skill levels. We welcome emerging and established artists needing time away to focus on their creative projects or research, immerse in a new environment and culture or seek renewed inspiration. The end product is not necessarily the primary focus and there is no requirement to exhibit or talk about your work if you do not wish to do so. However, if talks and workshops are of interest to you during your residency, this is possible to organise directly with ClayMake Studio. (https://www.claymakestudio.com.au/)

Proposals are welcome throughout the year and each season has its own creative possibilities. Blue Studio is fully equipped ceramic studio; however, we are open to proposals from artists working in other mediums, with preference given to those wishing to include ceramic elements to their projects or practice.

Fees & Other Important Stuff
The Blue Studio Residency fee is $400 per week, with a 10% discount for residencies of 4 weeks or longer. Additional to this is a one-off service fee of $60 and a refundable $400 bond. Payment of the bond, service fee and one week fee is to be paid before the residency starts, and additional weeks are to be paid on a weekly basis and at least one week in advance.

The residency fees include artist accommodation, exclusive use of the studio, internet and utilities. They also include reasonable artist support and assistance in facilitation of the projects if required and some firing costs, pending on the size of works.

Successful applicants will be responsible for all other costs including food, transport, travel costs, medical costs, art materials and firing costs if the work is large (by size or quantity) and cannot be easily accommodated in our kilns. There is no stipend or living allowance attached to the stay in Blue Studio Residency.

PLEASE NOTE: All fees are in Australian dollars.
