The Art´n Fiber® residency fellowship (short term) focuses on international exchange and cooperation.


The two weeks stay is addressed to professional textile/fiber artists and those with equally active artistic commitment.

The current target group is European artists living outside the borders of Sweden.The residency was established on the initiative of textile/fiber artist Katriina Flensburg and it is run in cooperation with and support from the Region Uppsala and Uppsala Municipality/City. Residency location is the Quilt Academy of Sweden facilities. 


The release date of the open call for the 2024 residency is soon here - stay tuned!


New: Starting from 2024 we are in position to offer a limited number of weeks for individual artist funded/paid short term stays with full disposition of the residency facilities. Welcome with inquiries!



Recipients of the fellowships 2022 and 2023 were the fiber artists Fabia Delise, Italy and Dorothy Wedderburn, the Netherlands,

see the following statements of the selection committee and a photo sample over the respective stay.

Dorothy Wedderburn

the recipient of the 

Art´n Fiber® Residency Fellowship 2023


The motivation by the selection committee:

 

" Dorothy Wedderburn is a widely exhibited member of the European fiber art community. The outcome of her work indicates a solid and broad artistic and technical skill in design and composition as well as methods such as fabric printing, dyeing, stitching, layering and embroidery. Her current source of inspiration is the tactile qualities of cloth and the history embedded in worn cloth. During the residency, Wedderburn

will focus on the clues and traces transmitted to her through the cloth with the purpose of creating a sort of layered collages by applying methods of overprinting with silkscreen and hand or machine stitching. An appreciated additional value to this residency is the plan to involve members of the local fiber art community for a mutual exchange in a workshop.
We are looking forward to learning more about Wedderburn’s artistic practice and the presentation of her work to audiences in Uppsala."

Fabia Delise

the recipient of the

Art´n Fiber® Residency Fellowship 2022


The motivation by the selection committee:


"Fabia Delise is a technically proficient textile artist with an independent approach to a

specific classic patchwork

technique called

“English Paper Piecing”. She is

not bound to the traditional technique but anchored in it

which makes her artwork contemporary, exploratory, innovative, and aesthetically appealing. In her application for

the residency Art ‘n Fiber® she

also describes curiosity and interest in the residency as well as its surroundings of Storvreta and Uppsala. The examples given

by her about the purpose of her

stay awoke our interest and curiosity."
