1. FIBRES WEST SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Applicants should be actively participating in the fibre arts community in Western Australia, either as a practitioner, someone involved with community groups, or a promising student. The recipient would be one whose participation at Fibres West 2017 will offer benefit to themselves and also the wider textile community, in some form.

The Scholarship will cover 80% of the full-fee registration cost with the recipient contributing 20% of the full-fee registration cost.

Application forms can be downloaded here or by email to info@fibreswest.com.au. Contact details for further inquiries are listed on our Contacts page.
