RMIT graduate Lyndall Watson was selected as a recipient of the Australian Tapestry Workshop (ATW) 2014 Artist in Residence program.
The artist in residence program invites artists to immerse themselves in the unique studio environment of the Workshop for 2-8 weeks, full or part-time.
2014 Artists in Residence were selected by a panel including ATW Director Antonia Syme, Curator and Lecturer at Melbourne University, Dr Rebecca Coates & Kay Lawrence AM, Adjunct Professor in the School of Art Architecture and Design at the University of South Australia.
RMIT Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) graduate Lyndall's practice involves weave being reduced to a basic one-to-one ratio of yarn over yarn - the simplest constructed textile concept.
RMIT academic and Design Institute of Australia VIC/TAS Vice President Claire Beale said it's exciting to see the way in which our graduates are developing their creative practice directly after graduation.
"By confidently engaging in professional artist-in-residency programs such as these, our graduates are showcasing the skill of the early career artisan. By entering the public arena, they are encouraging consumers to develop an appreciation for the hand crafted product, and demystifying the creative process."
Lyndall is currently immersed in the residency program.
