Bath Textile Artists
We are a select group of professionals who combine years of experience in the fields of embroidery, felting, quilting, costume, weaving, dyeing, stitching and silk painting.
Our aim is to expand the boundaries of textile techniques into the realms of fabric art. The strength of the group is its variety of styles and sparkling creativity.
Inspiration for members comes from the response to nature and landscape, a zest for travel, myth and architecture; and works are often wrought with a wisp of humour. Jewel-like embroideries and costume adornment, pictures and wearables, banners and hangings all make a group exhibition a colourful and textural treat.
Invitations for public and private commissions have provided the impetus for some very fine work locally and nationally. Members of the group are happy sharing their expertise through leading workshops and lectures; several teach at schools and colleges in the South-west.
