During these weeks, Work Center apartments are available for rent at a reduced weekly rate (please note partial week rentals are not available). Apartments are lovely and rustic. They include a double bed, private bathroom, and kitchen complete with cooking and eating utensils. Bedding, towels, and linens will be provided, but residents must bring their own toiletries. Wireless internet is available. Apartments do not have phones, televisions, or air conditioners (fans are provided). Visual arts studios are also available for an additional cost. No pets are allowed and smoking is prohibited inside all FAWC buildings, including apartments. If you book different apartments for any week, you will need to find your own accommodation for the Saturday evenings.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the Work Center property, indoors or outdoors, or on the adjoining residential streets, Pearl Street and Fishburn Court. With the exception of licensed service animals (as defined by the ADA), pets are not permitted at the Work Center. Note: If you plan on bringing your licensed service animal, you will be asked to provide a copy of your service animal’s registration papers.


We cannot accommodate requests for a specific visual arts studio.

Check-in is on Sunday between 4-6 PM and check-out is on Saturday by noon. (If you book different apartments for different weeks, you will need to find your own accommodation for Saturday evening).

We are unable to accommodate early arrivals or late departures.

Residents are expected to check out on time and leave the apartment clean.


The laundry room will be available for a few hours on select evenings. No staff will be present to make change so please bring quarters.


As we don’t know what the Covid situation will be in fall 2023, we can’t yet tell you specifically what our Covid policies will be. Please be assured that our top commitment is to your safety, and that we will err on the side of caution regarding Covid.

Depending on the state of the virus, precautions could include requiring all residents and guests to show proof of vaccination and proof of a negative test result no more than 72 hours before arrival, and that masks be worn in all indoor locations onsite.

We will let you know what our policies will be as we get closer to the beginning of the Returning Residency.

If you choose to cancel your attendance for any other reason, our cancellation policy remains as it always has:

If, for reasons unrelated to Covid, you cancel three weeks or more before the residency start date, you will receive a full refund minus a $75 cancellation fee. If you cancel less than three weeks prior to the residency start date, you will forfeit your payment in full.
