UK Artist at Penland Fellowship 2018 (Textiles)

The UK artist at Penland Fellowship 2018 is open this year to makers whose main practice is within textiles.

Closing date: 13 Nov 2017

The Penland campus is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Penland brings together artists and makers in an immersive, cross-disciplinary learning environment. Courses are led by practicing artist/educators and typically consist of demonstrations, lectures, and tutorials centred on workshop practice. Penland offers a diverse range of courses across many materials and craft disciplines. The course you choose does not need to be textiles related.

The selection panel will be looking for the applicant who they feel will benefit most from the fellowship. They will take into account how the successful applicant might apply the experience to how they work in the future, and consider what the applicant might bring to the ongoing series of annual fellowships. This fellowship is offered to makers whose primary material is textile. Applicants will be within their first ten years of practice. There is no age restriction and the programme of study does not necessarily need to have been a university course.
