Current and forthcoming exhibitions
Celebrating innovative textile practice by the Textile Study Group
9 January to 27 April 2024
Address: Crafts Study Centre, Falkner Road, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7DS
Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday 10am-4pm
2023 marked the 50th Anniversary of The Textile Study Group, a collective of textile artists who have been at the forefront of innovative making, teaching and textile art practice. Since its inception in 1973, and originally established to support tutors of embroidery, the group has evolved and grown in stature and is now one of the UK’s most prestigious and respected groups of textile artists and tutors.
The Textile Study Group maintains a core membership of 25 experienced textile teachers, all of whom are nationally and internationally recognised for their forward-thinking and challenging approaches to art practice, contemporary teaching and making. Many members are published authors of textile, art, and design books, and many have won prizes and awards for their outstanding work.
After touring at Tweeddale Museum and Gallery at Peebles and The Ropewalk at Barton-upon-Humber in 2023, this landmark exhibition travels south to Farnham to show new audiences the broad range of the group’s output. Each artwork in this anniversary exhibition includes an element of 50 – either obviously or obscurely.
The exhibition is accompanied by a limited-edition bespoke book that includes new and exciting work from their current membership, and will acknowledge those who paved the way by initiating ‘Group ‘73’, (which later evolved into the Practical Study Group, renamed the Textile Study Group in 2010).
The exhibition will be accompanied by the following events
Admission to the Crafts Study Centre and its exhibitions is free. Events are free to attend, but booking is recommended: https://www.csc.uca.ac.uk/programme
