For the last 6 years, weaversbazaar has invited people and organisations to apply for support under our annual sponsorship scheme. The primary aims of our sponsorship schemes are to
- engage a community in actively participating in weaving,
- support the development of novice weavers, or
- actively and practically bring weaving to a new group of people
The resources we have are modest and mainly take the form of equipment, guidance and/or yarn.
Over the years our sponsorship has enabled activities such as Guild workshops, the use of tapestry weaving as therapy for vulnerable individuals, community tapestry weaving projects and tapestry weaving activities as part of wider social events.
Applications for 2019 sponsorship have now closed. We will be announcing the outcomes shortly.
