Women artists residency – The Hosking Houses Trust

15 March 2023

Deadline: June 1, 2023

The Hosking Houses Trust invites applications from women artists who would benefit from a residency (two weeks to two months) in a country cottage near Stratford-upon-Avon.

Since 2002, the Hosking Houses Trust has offered residencies to older women writers. Over 160 writers have benefited from a period of peace for personal work without other duties, and this is now being extended to women artists.



Church Cottage is a one-up, one-down artisan cottage beside the churchyard in the village of Clifford Chambers  .In 2019, Arts Council England sponsored the building of a small, light studio extension (fifteen feet by ten). The Cottage is free and utility bills are paid but there is no other financial support.



The Hosking Houses Trust is seeking:

  • artists and crafts practitioners who have achieved a substantial body of successful work, whether in the form of exhibitions, publications or other forms of public dissemination.
  • The trust is especially interested (but not exclusively) in work relating to words, for example cartoons, illustrations, graphic novels, calligraphy or animation.
  • Candidates should be over the minimum age of forty and be able to manage the short staircase.
  • Same gender couples are welcome if both are engaged in creative activity and pets are welcome.


How to apply?
Apply by seeing the Hosking Houses Trust website and contact L.E.M.Campbell@warwick.ac.uk for more information.

Deadline to apply, Thursday 1st June.
