Rent the Studios
Rent any of WSW’s facilities: intaglio, papermaking, letterpress, silkscreen, book arts, kilns, or the darkroom. The following rates include basic materials. Artists are responsible for their own ink, pulp, photo paper, clay and firing fees, and paper for editioning.
Hourly rental rates are $21/hour. WSW provides a general studio orientation and is available to help on a limited basis with basic technical questions. We can also schedule advanced technical assistance, which is $65/hour on weekdays and $80/hour on weekends, each with a one-hour minimum.
Reduced studio rental rates are available for those interested in working for extended periods in the print or paper studios:
- 2 consecutive days $160
- 3 consecutive days $240
- 4 consecutive days $320
- 5 consecutive days $400
- 6 consecutive days $480
- 7 consecutive days $560
To schedule a studio rental, contact Studio Manager Chris Petrone at [email protected] or (845) 658-9133.
Rent the Kilns
Kiln rentals must be scheduled one month in advance of the desired firing date. Email Ceramics Studio Manager Ruth McKinney Burket at [email protected] to reserve your date. Due to limited availability and a busy schedule, kiln rental dates are scheduled at WSW’s discretion.
- Baby kiln: 2.5 cubic feet, shelf size 16”
$40 for cone 4 or bisque; $50 for cone 6
- Large kiln: 10 cubic feet, shelf size is 26”
$60 for cone 4 or bisque; $75 for cone 6
Renters are responsible for loading and unloading their work or hiring someone to do so. WSW can provide assistance at an additional fee of $15 per kiln load. Renters are also responsible for scraping and washing the kiln shelves used, as needed. Shelves not properly cleaned will incur a $10 maintenance fee.
Please note: kiln rentals do not occur on the same schedule as studio kiln firings, these are additional firings scheduled for the sole purpose of the kiln renter.
