Our exhibitions for 2020 all had to be postponed or cancelled due to the Covid19 pandemic, but this has not stopped our textile work.

We still hope to exhibit our work on the theme of “Discoveries” and at the moment we are working towards an exhibition in August-September 2021, to be repeated in October-November 2021 - lockdown restrictions permitting


The theme is about our creative journey as textile artists. The starting places are many and various and the results may not be what we expected or anticipated. Some have used the theme to produce a body of work based on ‘discoverers’, whether scientists, writers, explorers, or on events or places. Others have explored their ideas through internal thoughts, feelings and reflections. By research, chance find or personal search we also aim to discover and explore new techniques and find new ways to work. Join us on this voyage of exploration and see what we’ve discovered.

Midlands Textile Forum meet regularly throughout the year and at various venues around the region.  Meetings vary, development sessions are where we show and talk about our own work and share the processes and techniques we are using at the moment.  Other members give constructive feedback and often a lively but helpful discussion will suggest various ways forward with the work.

Other meetings focus on the 'business' of the forum.  All members are involved in the various aspects of this.Currently our meetings are on Zoom

We welcome new members. If you are interested in finding out more about us and attending a meeting, please let us know via the contacts page.
