Icelandic Textile Centre

Icelandic Textile Centre

Textílsetur Íslands / The Icelandic Textile Center has openings for October, November and December 2016.

We encourage applications from artists who work with both traditional and contemporary forms of textile and fiber arts, or whose artistic practices are intrinsically linked to the use of textiles, including performance, costume/theater, installation, wearable art and fashion.

The residency is based in “Kvennaskólinn”, the former Women’s College of Blönduós, and as such has private rooms with shared living and open plan shared studios, a loom weaving loft, and a small gallery attached to the dye studio, called “Bílskúr Gallerí”.

The transitional season of autumn means a manageable weather forecast, wind fluctuates between still and strong, and the season pulls together the remains of summer’s magnificent sunsets with the introduction of light dustings of occasional snows and frosts. November brings heavier winter weather and a dramatic shift compared to the other months of autumn.
