About Textile forum South West

Textile Forum South West (TFSW) is a contemporary ‘textile hub’ for the southwest. It is a non-profit making, voluntary organisation to promote and develop textiles in all forms for the educational, cultural and economic benefit of the region. It is a point of exchange for people who love making, thinking or talking TEXTILES.

Membership is open to anyone over 18 years of age with a professional or personal interest in textiles and is not limited to those living in the region. For details see http://www.tfsw.org

Established in February 2004 with the help of funding from Arts Council England, Textile Forum South West generates debate, events and research that will raise the profile of textiles and develop the region’s textile culture, creating networking opportunities and encouraging collaboration between education, practitioners, museums, galleries, industry, local authorities and arts organisations.

Whilst TFSW operates from a regional base, it aims to attract a wider participatory audience, particularly through conferences, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, publications and special events.

  1. Good luck with your exhibition. Stroud International Textiles was contacted a while back and SIT offered to put details on our web and newsletters but I have heard nothing back which is a shame. Hope to see you all at Pairings II-conversations & collaborations in Stroud in May 2012. 28 April – 27 May
    Symposium 5th May at Stroud College

  2. Hi Lizzie, An invitation has gone out, however, it didn’t have your name on it for which I apologise. Hope to see you at the preview on the 23rd. We are all really looking forward to it. Jayne
