Application process for new members


The Midlands Textile Forum is an exhibiting group of textile artists.  We do not provide training or development for individual members. We welcome any artists who are interested in joining us to come to one of our meetings to meet members of the Forum and see what we do.

Potential new members should send an expression of interest to the Forum via the membership application form on our web site.  We have a 2 stage membership process:

Stage 1 – submission of the application form with images of your work.  If you are successful at this stage we’ll let you know and you will proceed to stage 2. 

Stage 2 – a face to face or zoom meeting with MTF members.  You will need to show the work submitted as images in stage 1.

At either stage the decision not to proceed with your membership application is final.  No correspondence will be entered into.

We are looking for:

  • Quality Your work should be executed to a professional and consistent standard.

  • Originality Your body of work should make a strong visual statement and show your originality.

  • Coherence Your work should explore ideas/themes and show how you are developing a distinctive artistic vision.

  • Knowledge of Materials and Techniques You must have a sound and professional technical approach and professional presentation.
