Drop Forge & Tool’s Creative Residencies are open to artists of all disciplines, backgrounds, and skill levels, who seek time and space away from their daily lives to focus on their creative process. We are located in two buildings about a mile apart in the city of Hudson, NY. 

Our residency program runs Jan - Nov and we currently take applications 3 times per year.

For more information on our residencies including links to previous and upcoming residents, go to the RESIDENCIES page on our website HERE.


This application is for residencies during the Fall Session (Sept - Nov 2018).

Drop Forge & Tool's emphasis is on collaborative process and new work development.  We prioritize residency applications as follows.  

1) Collaborative Group: A group of two or more artists looking to do concentrated work on a project together. Collaborative groups should designate one person to fill out one application.

2) Co-working Group: A group of two or more artists who are not collaborating, but would like to share residency time and space together. Each artist should fill out an application, designating the other artists with whom they would like to share the residency.

3) Individual Artist: Artists willing to share the residency space with another artist (or two). Individual artists sharing space with other artists they do not know will have their own bedroom. Fill out one application designating that you are applying on your own.
