Open call for Artists in Residence

Individual work in the Textile Centre Haslach in cooperation with ETN

The Textile Zentrum Haslach, in cooperation with the European Textile Network ETN, is announcing a 2-week artist-in-residence program for 1 person each in the following three areas from August 1st to 14th, 2022:
- Tufting
- Dobby weaving (on handlooms)
- Jacquard weaving (TC1 and mechanical, electronically controlled loom)

The program aims to make the infrastructure of the Textile Centre Haslach available to people who have the basic technical knowledge to be able to advance their own project as independently as possible and who want to get involved intensively with their work for 2 weeks. The relative seclusion of Haslach, the beauty of the surrounding nature and refreshing swimming breaks in the river pool offer ideal conditions for this concentration, while at the same time the technical conditions in the Textile Centre Haslach open up many options.

In the first 2 days of the stay, experts are available for training in the specific technique, after which the participants should be able to use the equipment as independently as possible with free time allocation (except in ​​jacquard weaving - see below).

The 3 people are provided with a shared apartment in the immediate vicinity of the Textile Centre Haslach, in which each has their own small room. The exchange among each other and the mutual inspiration should be an essential part of the stay in Haslach.

At the end of the stay there will be a small internal presentation of the results. In addition, each participant undertakes to create an article/photo series/video about their own work in Haslach in English, which will be published on the ETN website and on the website of the Textile Centre Haslach. General requirement for an application is a valid membership in the ETN!

Conditions, technical requirements, and costs for the 3 areas: see PDF!
