FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR TEXTILE ARTISTS! - The Richard and Elizabeth Ashford Textile Award.

Richard and I are pleased to establish an annual award to encourage and support textile artists and help them enjoy artistic freedom. We hope our award will contribute to the development of the fibre arts or the education of future spinners, weavers, felters, knitters and dyers.
Valued at NZ$5,000 the award can be used to purchase any Ashford equipment, fibre or yarns.
We are looking for creative projects that have vision and are viable. This could be a garment, process, or an educational or philanthropic project. The award is open to everyone: individuals, guilds/groups, aid agencies, non-government agencies...
Your application must be received by 
March 1st each year.
