Thanks for supporting RWS Studios & Artists!

We are grateful for YOU! 

You can help us serve over 80 artists, support our EMERGE artists in residency, maintain and grow resources including printing presses, kilns, wheels, table saws, workspaces, ventilation, computers, spray booths, and so so much more. While not a non-profit, we have a very heavy social bottome line. We run on the thinest of margins while trying to keep costs affordable for artists working on their own small businesses and making their way on their creative paths in an urban setting.  Every dollar helps us continue to serve our local artists.

Please consider supporting RWS in the way that works best for you. Funding through in kind donations or gifts of equipment or materials also  help us elevtate loacl artists and our community. for other payment options or for more information

Studio Wishlist 
& In Kind Opportunities

We have a wide and expanding array of equipment, space and tools that facilitate the artists' work. Some of the items we currently have are old or broken. Others are ones that would help increase the artists ability to work safely, efficiently and successfuly while maintaining an affordable workspace. If you have ideas, questions or items you want to offer for our consideration, please contact us at While we appreciate all donation offers, due to our multi person use of equipment, tools, materials, etc and our limited space and resources to repair or invest in a not quite shop ready item, we do need to be able to turn some offers down but will always try to suggest another local artist or group we feel might better utiliize it. 

Thank you for your valuable support!
