Hello - I am posting a pdf with information about weaving residencies in Yell in Shetland - for the interest of any weaving members or weavers that you might know? I am also adding some images to add colour to the blog - last November I was fortunate to participate in a Scottish curators research visit to India which included a spell in Kachchh, an area rich in textile tradition and other skills. There are a number of NGO's working throughout the region to help local artisans to develop and maintain their skills, whilst introducing the design of new products with contemporary appeal which will reach wider markets and provide greater economic support. It's obviously an intervention which requires great sensitivity, but I visited some good models, for example: www.kala-raksha.org

The Heritage Crafts Association have highlighted this organisation which is offering funding. Basically if you are a craft teacher you can apply for a grant to spend 4 weeks somewhere else in Europe broadening your horizons and learning how other folk teach. Might be worth a read to see if you qualify...
Should be really interesting.
