About the Contemporary Textiles Fair

The Contemporary Textiles Fair

The Contemporary Textiles Fair, usually held every year in March, is an established must-visit event in the textile lovers’ calendar, offering a perfect opportunity to see a diverse range of designer makers showing a stunning array of distinctive and colourful textiles.

Richly embellished embroidery, hand-dipped shibori, ecoprints & naturally dyed artworks, contemporary knitted homeware, sumptuous silks and handwoven scarves, wonderful handbags and fascinating 3D wall hangings – the range of work on show is beautiful and diverse. Wearable and hangable art from the quirky to couture.

Next fair

Friday 16–Sunday 18 March 2018.

Full details of the fair will appear in What's On when the Spring season events are listed (end of November, usually).
