About Us

The ACT Textile Arts Association (ACTTAA) is an enthusiastic group of textile artists and hobbyists who join together the share skills through monthly meetings, play 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 techniques to make a range of items including wearable art, wall hangings, paintings, sculptural forms, jewellery, bags, hats, and household items.

You can see examples of ACTTAA members’ work and inspirations on our Instagram account. Take a look at our coming activities on our events page.
