Diploma or degree program BA, MFA and PhD.  This would be a great opportunity for you promote your work and to connect with the broader textiles community.

Details below:

Joe Lewis is providing the space but not the editorial support. His guidelines below are as follows:

  • “Do not write about yourself in the third person (this is not a press release)
  • Label your jpeg of your work in the following way: “Number_your_name_name_of_work_date”
  • On your corresponding Image list please provide a breakdown of materials and process / or processes used.
  • Submission can be made in the language of the program English or French if you want to provide a translation that will also be published.
  • [For English speakers: be aware the respect for and appreciation of textile and fibre work: the province of Quebec is both different and greater then the rest of Canada and I say this from first hand experience, so you might want to take that into consideration]”
