TOAST & Crafts Council
Artist in Residence
TOAST is a unique lifestyle brand, creating and curating simple,
functional, beautiful clothing, homeware and editorial. We are
known for our thoughtful, contemporary design and commitment

nurturing relationships with artists, painters, weavers, ceramicists

The annual TOAST Creative Residency aims to connect and
inspire creative individuals and foster thought over a three-day
programme of talks, workshops and live demonstrations. This year,
we have partnered with Crafts Council, the national charity for
craft, to invite an artist in residence to showcase their work in our
upcoming TOAST Virtual Creative Residency.
The chosen artist will be required to create an artwork inspired
by Flux and Flow, the inspiration behind our Autumn Winter
collection. Following the words of the Greek philosopher
Heraclitus, Flux and Flow celebrates continual growth and
evolution, and how we all have the capacity for great change and
The finished work will be presented at the TOAST Virtual Creative Residency taking place on 15th – 17th October, and later donated to the Crafts Council collection. The project will be featured in the TOAST
online Magazine and in Crafts Magazine, and there will be a £1000
contribution to support the creation of the artwork.
If you are an emerging artist or creative and would like to apply,
please submit your application before midday BST, 4th September
2020. The winner will be selected by a Crafts Council and TOAST
panel. Please note that this call out is open to all artists, wherever
you may be in the world. Read the full terms and conditions.
