Artists in Residence

The Australian Tapestry Workshop Artist in Residence program invites artists to immerse themselves in a unique studio environment. Our mission is to ensure that this traditional art form and our specialist creative skills are kept alive and thriving in Australia through active collaboration with contemporary artists.  

The ATW Artist in Residence program provides artists with the opportunity to share studio space with our master weavers and create new work in our spacious, light-filled heritage building in South Melbourne.

The ATW Artist in Residence program encourages the exchange of knowledge and skills between contemporary artists and ATW weavers and staff; provides artists with a platform for professional development and public engagement and fosters creative exchange and collaboration.

2020 Artists in Residence: Hannah Gartside (VIC), Teelah George (WA), Julia Gutman (NSW), Jessica Hemmings (Sweden), Victoria Manganiello (United States), Carolyn Menzies (VIC), Dias Prabu (Indonesia), Mark Smith (VIC), Muhubo Sulieman (VIC), Paula do Prado (NSW). The recipient of the $3000 AIR Scholarship supported by the City of Port Phillip is Victoria Manganiello (United States). 

The ATW Artist in Residence program is generously supported by our valued donors to our Transforming Tapestry Annual Appeal as well as the City of Port Phillip.
