Australian Tapestry Workshop Artist in Residence

Deadline: November 28, 2014 {RECEIVE}

Artist in Residence
Australian Tapestry Workshop

South Melbourne Victoria
2015 Season

Collaboration is central to the idea of creating great tapestry art, and over the years the Australian Tapestry Workshop has worked with many leading Australian and international artists.

The artist in residence program invites artists to immerse themselves in the unique studio environment of the Workshop for 2-8 weeks, full or part-time.

Artists working in any medium - not just the visual arts or textile based practice - and at any stage of their career can undertake a residency at the Australian Tapestry Workshop.

We are not able to offer comprehensive training in tapestry weaving as part of the residency. If artists are only interested in learning tapestry we suggest they enroll in one of our classes. Artists will be given a space on the Workshop floor and will be required to deliver a public talk. The ATW cannot offer accommodation or financial support, however artists can freely use our yarn and equipment.


• Completed application form
• A one page Curriculum Vitae
• A one page statement outlining your practice and a proposal about what you would do during the residency
• Up to 10 images of recent work

Applications close on Friday November 28 at 5pm.
