Our exhibitions for 2020 have had to be postponed or cancelled due to the Covid19 pandemic.
We still hope to exhibit our work on the theme of “Discoveries” at some point in 2021.
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.
We currently have exhibitions booked for January-March 2021 in Leek, Staffordshire and April-June 2021 in Burton, but (in September 2020) we are still waiting to see if these will go ahead
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 email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the contacts page.
