Textile residency programme in Chianti in Tuscany

Studio Aphorisma has launched a residency programme for the training, research and the creation of textiles, based on the idea of supporting the encounter and exchange among craftsmen, designers, textile artists or simply enthusiasts interested in this field, all people who are somehow connected by their common interest in the textile world.
Our atelier is nestled in one of the most beautiful settings in the Tuscan countryside, in the heart of the Chianti area. Residents will appreciate this stimulating environment, to find the ideal conditions from which to draw inspiration and practice their creative work.
People who want to independently develop a personal research project in a quiet, well-equipped space, as well as persons who wish to deepen and expand their knowledge in this field can apply.
The atelier has handlooms of various types, from 4 up to 24 harnesses, which will be made available to those who wish to learn, experiment and create their own original projects.
The accommodation connected to the atelier will be available for single applicants or small groups of 2 or 3 applicants for residencies lasting from one to four weeks.
On request residents can also benefit from our technical and artistic advice for the realization of their projects, combining traditional knowledge and skills with a contemporary approach.
Special requests and the choice of dates can be agreed directly with Studio Aphorisma by email:
