Sense of place is important to everyone whether it is a location, the beings around us, an emotion, time, memory or all of the above. We will explore what it means to live in the world, take notice of our surroundings and find our place. From inspirational starting points our members will take individual creative journeys developing process and technique to respond to our theme.
Midlands Textile Forum has been in existence since 2007. We are not a static group, but take on new members after an application and interview process. Between us we have a wide variety of backgrounds; some have worked professionally in the creative arts for many years, some have followed other careers but with an interest and passion for all things textile, whilst others may have started their textile journey later in life.
