To celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2023, the Textile Study Group presents Making:50.

Jean Draper. Codex 2: A Fifty Year Manuscript (detail) 2023


MAKING:50 is a significant touring exhibition to mark this notable milestone in the group’s history. All 24 members responded to the challenge of creating a new artwork which includes an element of 50 – either obviously or obscurely.

No two works are alike. Each piece offers an intimate insight into the interests, inspiration and practice of the artist. From important issues that affect us all, to quirky and humbling reflections of the last five decades, each artwork has been individually crafted and stitched from a myriad of materials including salvaged plastics, foraged fibres, upcycled slides and found or treasured items.
