DWL AIR is a 2-week residency program that provides private working space and access to our TC2 loom, staff support, studio facilities, and equipment.
The DWL AIR studios are located in a private studio at Praxis as well as in a separate house, adjacent to our main facility. We welcome artists and designers for two-week residencies to spend dedicated time focusing on their digital weaving practice.
The residency provides a safe and private environment to weave plus the full services of our main facility. Residents will be able to engage with the Praxis community, made up of inquisitive and inspiring makers of varying ages and backgrounds. Residents from out of town will also become familiar with our neighborhood, Collinwood, which boasts a vibrant ecosystem of studios, galleries, and independent creative producers.
To ensure a successful residency, we strongly advise that applicants demonstrate experience weaving on a TC2 or enroll in Jacquard File Design I or II, our virtual file design classes, prior to the residency.
