The group has exhibited in the UK and Ireland in a range of venues including art galleries, cathedral chapter houses, museums and at the NEC Birmingham, as well as in more challenging spaces such as outdoors in Easton Walled Gardens and at Papplewick Victorian Pumping Station. At each venue the work is curated to take on a different character.

In 2020 Nolitex met the challenge of galleries being closed due to covid19 regulations by moving online to showcase its exhibition ‘Rooted in the Wood’ on FaceBook and Instagram. This was followed by another virtual exhibition of work inspired by members’ reflections on lockdown, ‘Looking Out, Looking In’, and the group continues to maintain its online presence by sharing images of work in progress.

Nolitex is delighted to be returning to exhibiting ‘in the real world’ at Farfield Mill in autumn 2021 where the twelve members of Nolitex will explore their own lines of thought, from the prosaic to the fanciful, in textiles and mixed media.

Thread Running Through – Textilia 3

The landscape in which we live, meet and work is a northern landscape largely shaped by cloth. Distinctive weavers cottages line the canals and perch on hillsides, tall mill chimneys dominate the valleys. We meet in a grand and richly furnished manor house created by mill owners, exhibit and seek inspiration and materials at converted mills in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. Some of us have mill workers in our ancestry, weaving in our memories and in our blood.
