your residency


If you have applied and been offered a residency…

Congratulations and welcome to Craigardan!

During your residency, there will be a maximum of ten artists/scholars/chefs/writers/farmers-in-residence at any one time.  It is an intimate program. Participants live in the elegantly simple shared house with comfortable living spaces and stunning views.  All residents have open access to programs, classes and lectures.  Everyone gathers together for a few meals each week which, at Craigardan, are an art form - prepared by chefs with seasonal, organic ingredients from our farm.  The remainder of meals are self-prepared by residents, using ingredients from the farm share, and often cooked together as a family.

While here, the pace of life will slow to meet what’s most essential - walks in the woods, incredible food, good people, and the time to create.
