Open Call for Creatives to Apply for The Libraries’ New Maker-In-Residence Program

Apr 4, 2023

We are thrilled to announce the inaugural call for Makers launching the Chester County Library & Hankin Branch Makers-in-Residence program!

What is a Maker? A maker can be an artist, musician, songwriter, crafter, techno-wizard, dancer, and lots more! A maker is a creative who loves the process – not just the end product and wants to share that process with others.

 Our ideal Maker is passionate about creating and wants to connect and share their passion with the community. Specifically, we seek creators who:

  • possess skills to teach and share their work and creative process
  • love to interact with people from a wide variety of backgrounds
  • enjoy collaborating with others
  • are passionate about their craft

The Maker-in-Residence will share activities through open studio hours and workshops that will allow visitors to try a new skill, experience a new craft, and/or participate in a collaborative project.

All interested potential Makers-in-Residence should apply online at by Tuesday, January 31st, 2023. We will be interviewing and selecting candidates from February 13th – February 24th, with the residency to begin in mid-March 2023.

For a complete description of the Residency or questions email us at [email protected] or visit our website at The Maker-in-Residence program is made possible through a generous donation from the Friends of the Chester County Library.
