CALL: Residency Application for The Textile Arts Center


The Textile Arts Center Artists in Residence is a nine month program that combines studio access with a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, regular critical dialogue and mentorship, providing residents an opportunity to learn and explore the textile medium, and an alternative to traditional higher education programs. The residency culminates in a group exhibition produced and hosted by TAC.

TAC AIR Program Provides:

– 24-hour access to individual studio space

– 24-hour access to TAC studio and equipment

– Technical classes in techniques including weaving, felting, machine knitting, and surface design

– Seminars in textile history, modern craft theory, and professional development (grant writing, material sourcing, etc)

– Critiques and Mentorship with professional designers and fiber artists


The TAC AIR Scholarship Fund will support one artist or designer who demonstrates commitment to their art practice, identifies with a historically underrepresented community in the arts and states the need for financial assistance to participate in the program and advance their artistic practice. Applications for the scholarship are submitted along with the program application.
