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.

Drop Forge & Tool's emphasis is on collaborative process and new work development. We prioritize applications for residencies with two or more artists working together. Individual artists are also welcome to apply, although we may ask if you are willing to share the residency space with others, to give as many artists as possible the opportunity to spend time with us!

Residencies are available for varied lengths of time as needed, from just a few days to three weeks.

The residency fee is $300 per week to cover direct costs. We reserve a few spaces each residency period for artists who do not have funding and cannot afford the fee.

We are open year-round (except December) and currently take applications on a quarterly basis. For more detailed information and a link to open applications go to the Creative Residencies page on our website:

Collaborators should designate one person to fill out the application on the group’s behalf.
If you have any questions about the Residency Application, please email us at


Hudson, New York: United States

A large two bedroom flat and a 1000 sq ft attic studio space in a lovely residential neighborhood about 1 mile from the center of Hudson, NY. In 2017 we will also open an additional space with more studios and bedrooms in the center of town. Just 2 hours by car or by Amtrak from Penn Station NYC, Hudson is a beautiful little city with a remarkable history. Founded after the Revolutionary War by group of Quakers who called themselves “The Proprietors”, over the centuries Hudson has hosted such luminaries as Henry David Thoreau, Teddy Roosevelt, John Ashbury and Amanda Palmer, and has been home to whale oil refineries, brothels, and bootleggers. In more recent years, Hudson has become home to a growing community of artists and makers looking for a more spacious – literally and financially – place to work and live.
