We are drawing on this rich history to create a series of exhibitions in 2019/20, exploring the thread that runs through our stories, landscapes and work, creating a body of work that weaves together mill workers and owners, beauty created and price paid, the heritage we live and take forward.

The artists in Textilia 3 use many diverse techniques, including hand and machine stitch, felt, appliqué, mixed media and painting, ceramics, dyeing and resists, print and manipulated fabrics and fibres. Abstract, figurative and decorative pieces, wall art, 3D and wearable art are all included as well as a wide range of smaller textile items and cards.

Textilia 3 is a well-established group of 16 contemporary textile artists, based in the North of England, who have exhibited widely in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria over the last 25 years. We have built up a popular following of loyal visitors who regularly travel to see our work. Recent exhibitions have included site inspired works for Gawthorpe Textile Collection, Cliffe Castle Museum, Keighley and Fountains Abbey, as well as themed exhibitions at Ilkley Manor House, Skipton Town Hall and The Station, Richmond.
