About Us

The ACT Textile Arts Association (ACTTAA) is an enthusiastic group of textile artists and hobbyists who join together to share creative endeavours through monthly meetings, skill-sharing days and workshops. We are interested in using the design and embellishment of textiles to make a variety of items.

Techniques we use include dyeing, fabric manipulation, machine and hand embroidery, silk painting, stencil work, stamping, felting, beading, and printing. We use these skills to make a range of items including wearable art, wall hangings, paintings, sculptural forms, jewellery, bags, hats, and household items.

Everyone is welcome.
