Australian Tapestry Workshop AIR

Applications for the 2018 Artist in Residence Program are now open. Applications close on Friday 17 November 2017.


The Australian Tapestry Workshop enjoys an international reputation as a leader in contemporary tapestry. It is the only workshop of its kind in Australia and one of only a handful in the world for the production of hand-woven tapestries. The Artist in Residence program invites artists to immerse themselves in the unique studio environment of the ATW.

  • Artists can attend for minimum of 2 to a maximum of 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.
  • Artists will be given a working space at the ATW, reasonable use of ATW yarn & equipment and will be paid to deliver a public talk at the ATW.
  • The number of artists selected is usually 8 – 10, depending on the quality of applications.
