Making:50 at Farnham

Making:50 at Farnham

The Textile Study Group marked its 50th anniversary in 2023. For half a century, this group has been at the forefront of innovative making, teaching and textile art practice, and we are still going strong. We are celebrating this milestone, and our achievements, with a significant exhibition of new and exciting work from our current membership: Making:50. The exhibition continues until 27th April at its third exhibition location: The Crafts Study Centre, Farnham. 

On Thursday 4th April there will be an opportunity to ‘Meet the Artists’, with six of our members in conversation with Dr Stephen Knott, Director of the Crafts Study Centre. 

On Tuesday 23rd April there will be an online closing event, with Julia Triston, Siân Martin and Mandy Pattullo in discussion with Stephen Knott about their own work, the impact of the Making:50 exhibition and future plans for the group against a backdrop of increased interest in textile research and practice. 

Event booking is via Crafts Study Centre website.

The beautiful, limited-edition publication we commissioned to accompany the exhibition is available from the Crafts Study Centre or you can order it for posting anywhere in the world from our online shop.
