Women’s Studio Workshop has offered high quality, content-rich courses in printmaking, papermaking, and bookbinding for 46 years. The Summer Art Institute (SAI) financially supports our programming annually and has also provided the opportunity for WSW to establish itself as a national and innovative leader in these material studies. Sadly, and for the first time, our campus will remain closed during the optimal summer months due to COVID-19. Opportunities for teaching and learning, however, will carry on and continue to thrive!
We have designed online experiences that will keep our community learning and creating in meaningful ways. We know that nothing replaces in-person classes, particularly when our beautiful and secluded campus provides such a rich opportunity for deep concentration and community building. Below are modified virtual workshops in a variety of disciplines, designed for everyone from professionals to serious young artists!
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. If you are interested, please email Artistic Director Erin Zona at [email protected]
