Artists coming to WSW workshops from out-of-town will find themselves in the former hamlet of Binnewater, once a thriving cement mining community. Our main studio building was originally built as the company store. In all of our renovations, we have taken care to retain the historic charm of the building, while maximizing work areas and allowing for plenty of natural light and easy access to the surrounding beauty of the Catskill Mountains.
We encourage all people to participate in our programs. Don’t be fooled by our name — Women’s Studio Workshop welcomes men to come and study and experience a space run by women. While encouraging the voice and vision of women artists, we consciously seek to serve a diverse community. We do not discriminate on any basis in the administration of our educational programming or membership. Participants with special needs are encouraged to contact the Workshop in advance so we can insure adequate access to all studios and facilities.
