Raw Materials: Textiles Residency

Website: http://bowarts.org/whats-on/exhibitions-and-events/raw-materials-textiles-resident-makers%E2%80%99-brief

Bow Arts is looking for makers / designers / artists for two residencies that will form part of Raw Materials: Textiles. The residencies are research-based – with no working / studio space provided – to the aim of making new work for exhibition. Raw Materials: Textiles will explore the industrial heritage of textiles in the River Lea Valley, east London. This is an opportunity for a maker to further engage with heritage in their practice and explore the influence a material (textiles) can have on a geographical area’s development. The residency will be focused on providing a development and exhibition opportunity for a maker – to the aim of producing a physical response to heritage that will be exhibited alongside archival objects in the Raw Materials: Textiles exhibition – as well engaging new audiences with heritage through contemporary work, drawing out the relevance of heritage in contemporary textiles, fashion or design. There is a budget of £5,000 per residency to respond to this brief. The budget should cover all research time, tools, materials and related making costs to create the final piece(s) ready for exhibition. Fees to run textile skills workshops will be additional, at Bow Arts’ half-day artist rate of £200 per workshop.
