Textile Art Group

This event takes place at Bankfield Museum

We are a group of eleven textile artists who live in Kirklees, Calderdale and the surrounding area. We are a diverse and creative group working in a variety of ways in stitch and print to play to our individual strengths. We usually meet monthly at Bankfield museum and have worked with them looking at their collections. The exhibition ‘Perspectives on Pattern’ was one such occasion.

We have exhibited extensively in the county since our formation in 1995.

Our last exhibition in January was ‘Alchemy at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh. This began with eco printing and then looked at alchemy in its widest sense.

In 2016 ‘Blades and Blossoms’ at the Royal Armouries, Leeds was inspired by their samurai collection.

Stitch meets Print

This exhibition will provide an interesting collection of work which will enhance the awareness of stitched and printed textiles as a creative medium. We work in both 3D and wall mounted work. We have been looking at different printing techniques including collagraphy, digital printing and surface design using mono prints, resists and block printing. Stitching can add a further dimension to the work with layers of texture and colour.

Pandemic Postcards

During the Lockdown over the past 2 years the Textile Art Group continued to meet via Zoom. During this time we ran a ‘Postcard Challenge’ which will be on display at Bankfield. This was based around a one-word weekly topic suggested by each member in turn. Interpretation could be in any form and could include textile work and stitch, photographs and painting. ‘Pandemic Postcards’ is the result.
