WSW hosts two studio interns each term who work directly with the Studio Manager. You will work on projects including printmaking, letterpress, papermaking, and book arts, in addition to assisting with the ongoing operations of the facility. Interns are crucial participants in WSW’s creative community. They’re asked to work hard, and in return they are encouraged, supported, and challenged in their artistic lives.

All internships include a private room in WSW’s onsite Anne Atwood House and a stipend of $300/month. Interns work 40 hours per week, generally Monday through Friday, 9:00-5:00, but the schedule may change to accommodate the Workshop’s schedule. Outside working hours, and with respect to residents’ work, interns have unlimited studio access. The internship session can culminate in a group exhibition of work created during the term.
