For those who love hand made lace.
2018 is set to be a great year for lace with two important international exhibitions exploring this special family of textile techniques within the context of contemporary art.
In the spirit of collaboration and friendship TextileSupport will be giving two scholarships for students under the age of 25 currently enrolled in a tertiary Design, Art or Fashion programme to attend the workshops to be held at Walford Mill Crafts and
the Priest’s House Museum in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, in September 2018, in conjunction with Jane Atkinson's exhibition Ebb 'n' Flow. The scholarships aim to assist students who would like to incorporate lace making techniques into their practice to learn and/or develop skills with two exceptional lace makers.
Each scholarship includes:
•The workshop and materials fees
• Two night’s accommodation
• £300 to assist with travel costs
How to Apply:
All applicants must be under the age of 25 and currently enrolled in a tertiary Design, Art or Fashion programme. Students interested can complete the online form at www.textilesupport.net/lace-support where they will be asked to write a brief statement outlining a lace project they would like to develop, they must then upload their concept sketch or mood board to Instagram with the tags #lacesupport2018 and @textilesupport
