Artist Takeover

We have an exciting opportunity for an artist to take part in our Instagram Residency celebrating the handmade and repurposed, inspired by our site and its story. We want to develop the discussion in our community around repurposing materials and crafting something new whilst exploring the ethics of textile production and environmental impact.

We’re looking for an artist whose practice explores these themes. You will have full access to the site and its collections to gather information and inspiration. You will be invited to create work and share the creative process, from initial design ideas to finished product.

During the project, you will have full access to our Instagram account to share 3 posts a week throughout December to showcase your talents and keep followers updated on your progress.

This is a paid opportunity with a fee of £500. A separate expense budget of £300 is available for materials and travel.
