Residency Fee

Residency fees vary depending on the season (summer/winter). Fees always include access to all work facilities and equipment (the exception being the TC2 digital loom, which needs to be booked separately), WiFi, and bills regarding housing (electricity, water, etc.), an introduction to the exhibitions in Kvennaskólinn and the Textile Museum. Basic linen, towels, and other kitchen / bathroom essentials (soap and dishwasher detergent, etc.) are also supplied. Artists are responsible for all other living expenses and materials. Please note that the TC2 rental fee does not include materials or warp. 

Rooms are for one artist only, unless specified otherwise. Prices quoted are per month.

Please ensure if you are applying for grants that you will know the outcome 3 months prior to attending. If you apply less than three months before your intended residency date, your residency fee must be paid as soon as you are accepted, or within reason we may extend your deadline. 

Please also note that we will charge a confirmation fee of 5000 ISK (approx. 35 Euros) if your application is approved and you want to confirm your place at the residency.
