A fee of £30 per day gives 24 hour access to the studio and covers the cost of electricity, heating and internet. It includes administration of the residency and online promotion of the artist's work on the Art Pitch and COU COU websites and arts listings sites. If an event or exhibition takes place it also covers costs of preparation of the space, promotion and publicity by COU COU.
If you want to apply for a residency but finance is an issue get in touch anyway and we can discuss this.
The residency fee does not include the cost of accommodation. If you want to camp next to the studio, a tent and bedding is supplied and fees for camping are offered at a reduced rate by Cotswold Camping at £12 a night. Fees for camping are paid cash on arrival to the campsite. If preferred there are Air B&B or B&B in the area.
A deposit of £100 is asked for use of the tent, bedding & camping equipment in case of damage or loss. This is returned once kit is checked on leaving.
A deposit of 50% of the residency is required on booking. If it is cancelled less than a month from the residency it is non returnable.
If an exhibition or open studio event is held the artist meets the costs of hospitality.
Artists supply their own materials and paper. Some power tools are available for use. There are ample tables and shelving and walls can be used for temporary hanging of work, holes for fixings are permissable if made good afterwards. There is outdoor space available for sculpture making.
