Information on Aldworth Manor Artist Residencies.
Residencies at Aldworth take place numerous times during the year. A week or up to several weeks/months is possible depending on the time of year. Artist Residents stay in the Headmaster’s House, which is located in the middle of the estate grounds just down from Aldworth Manor. The 170-acre private historical estate gives our residents access to gardens, trails and lake and is picturesquely placed at the top of the hill with stunning views of Mount Monadnock. Located in Harrisville, a beautifully restored mill town, this New England hamlet offers inspiration and a place to retreat, create and explore. In Harrisville there is a general store, post office, and mill buildings (with yarn store/offices/artist studios). The bustling centers of Keene and Peterborough, NH are within 10 miles of Aldworth and offer the amenities of larger towns (groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc.) and trips can be arranged through the manor if required. Within a 20 mile radius, the Monadnock region provides exceptional access to parks, lakes, nordic/downhill ski areas, arts/cultural events year-round to fill your need for adventure, inspiration and relaxation. Local experiences such as contra-dancing, shape-note singing, four season outdoor activities and community potlucks/socials are encouraged depending on the desires of the residents. Depending on your area of work, we can accommodate different studio and creative space options on the property. The gardens and pavilion of the Manor also are great places to work or display your work.
