Dear Zane, The college I graduated from in Pennsylvania USA has an artist
in residence program which provides you with space to work and a small
salary I think. You would still need to find some job and a place to live I
will e-mail my former mentor and get the details of the program for you.
There are also other similar programs at other colleges. I am interested
in your hand made tools. What sort of tools did you make and how? If you
wish to e-mail me directly my address is @pfrese. Your English is
very good, by the way, no need to apologize.
