The Chili Bowl Workspace Residency is a four- to six-week opportunity for ceramicists who want to participate in WSW’s biggest community event of the year while also creating their own work in our supportive and immersive environment. We invite applications from artists in any stage of their careers and aim to provide artists with the time and space to live and work creatively.

Each February, WSW sells over 900 bowls, mugs, and tumblers at our Chili Bowl Fiesta. Attendees can fill their new wares with chili donated by over 20 area restaurants. The vessels are made and decorated throughout the year by visiting artists, staff, interns, local potters, and our weekly clay study group. Funds raised at the Fiesta support WSW’s ceramics department.

While the workspace residencies are highly subsidized (the actual cost is $5,000/month), awardees pay $100/week and make 50 glazed or 100 bisqued bowls in exchange for on-campus housing and 24/7 studio access. Additionally, artists receive a thorough studio orientation. Artists are expected to work independently, although studio staff is always available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. Artists are required to provide the expendable materials for their own project and can use studio materials for the Chili Bowl vessels. WSW maintains an extensive inventory of supplies and materials that artists may purchase while in residence.

This four-week residency in Malmö, Sweden is an unprecedented opportunity for artists working in print media and sculpture.

WSW has initiated a studio residency exchange with two not-for-profit collaborative workspaces: KKV Grafik Studio and Sculpture Workshop Monumental. Artists can choose to work in one or both studios, depending on their projects. Orientation to each studio is provided, however selected artists must be able to work independently and be familiar with the printmaking and/or sculpture processes they’ll be utilizing. Additional charges may apply if the selected artist needs professional assistance.

Both studios are located in the same building, and artists have 24-hour access to the facilities. Housing is provided in the building’s Sculpture studio section and travel costs, food, and materials are paid by the artist-in-residence.

The KKV Grafik Studio is a 3,000 sq/ft printmaking studio, professionally equipped for intaglio, silkscreen, lithography, and letterpress printing. The open space layout encourages dialogue and the cross-pollination of ideas. A small private workspace for preparatory work is also available. The Malmö KKV Grafik Studio was founded in 1973 and is self-governed by its 125 members, all of whom are artists. The municipality of Malmö is the fiscal sponsor of the workshop facility.

KKV Sculpture Workshop Monumental is a 10,000 sq/ft professional studio for woodworking, pottery, enamel, glass art, metal casting, metalworking, and model making. The Sculpture Workshop Monumental was established in 1973 as a foundation. Today, its members include about 300 artists and friends.
