Tapestry Commission Open Call
West Dean Tapestry Studio is pleased to announce the only open call tapestry commission in the UK for 2016.
This is an exceptional opportunity for artists working in any discipline to propose a tapestry to be hand-woven by Master Weavers at the West Dean Tapestry Studio. We invite artists to propose bold and imaginative ideas, no experience of working with tapestry is necessary.
West Dean Tapestry Studio specialises in contemporary design and weaving using traditional techniques. The Master Weavers are dedicated to working closely with artists and have developed an outstanding portfolio of work, including previous commissions from Tracey Emin, Martin Creed, John Piper, Eileen Agar, Basil Beattie, and Henry Moore.
Deadline for entry: Thursday 1 September 2016 at 5pm.
The winner will have their work woven by the studio, plus 3 week residency opportunity.
Please see website for full terms and conditions and to apply online.
