International Textile Exhibition

International Textile Exhibition


A rare chance to see some of the best textile art in Europe, if not the world, opening 9 January until 4 March 2018

‘Trip to the End of the World’ is this year’s theme for the '23rd Le Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork textile competition' with the winners and a short list of 38 selected by a panel of international judges from the hundreds of entries by artists from Italy, South Korea, France, the Czech Republic, China and many others. These make up the touring exhibition – where traditional techniques including patchwork, quilting and embroidery are used to create what is best described as extraordinary, contemporary wall-hangings some of them, from a distance, almost appear as paintings.

‘Trip to the End of the World’ follows last year’s ‘The Magic of Colour’ which drew audiences from Scotland and all parts of the North of England.
