Shetland opportunity

GlobalYell is looking for expressions of interest from resilient and experienced weavers who would like to come up to live and work in the Shetland Islands for a period of time, managing our textiles studio on Yell.

This is an opportunity to experience a beautiful and evocative landscape and lifestyle while developing your professional practice, creating networks, contributing to a textile conference in Shetland in 2023/4 and creating and running educational programmes for all ages. The weaver will also work with the founder of the studio to develop, fund-raise and participate in textiles-related community projects. 

Basic living accommodation can be provided, and you will have use of the looms and other equipment in the studio. 

If this is something that you feel might be worth exploring further please send Andy Ross an email: andy@globalyell.org with a CV and some examples of your work. An online meeting will be organized to have a conversation with interested parties.
