Human in Residence

If you'd like to spend a bit of time working at the FoAM Kernow studio, whether it's a few hours or a month, then there is some space available. There are a few options - residency/collaboration/space rental - depending on what you want to get out of it.

We'd like projects to fit in with our ethos - everything we do is non-profit and open-source, and fits somewhere in between the realms of arts-sciences-education. The more unfeasible the better!

We've arranged the studio so there's one big shared table, and a separate table for hardware projects. The shared space in the warehouse also has a piano, ping-pong table, kitchen, waterfront access, and a big freely bookable area for running workshops/events.

To apply, email with a brief outline of your interests and how long you would like to spend at the studio.
