About Our Residency Program
Gather Textiles is located in Treaty 6 territory (Edmonton). This past year we have moved to a larger studio location where we now have the capacity to host artists biannually. Artists in residence are invited to use our studio space for a period of 1 - 3 months to research, learn a new technique, or create new work.
