A Community of Textile Artists

We are a group of textile artists based in York. We work together to support each other in creating textile art but also as a force for change in promoting the value of Textile Arts.


Our core aims are:

  • To act as advocates for textile arts both locally and nationally

  • To display and sell our work in joint exhibitions

  • To support each other in developing our work

  • To develop networks with emerging and established groups of textile artists at national and international levels
