Welcome to the Eastern Region Textile Forum
The Eastern Region Textile Forum is a thriving group of like-minded individuals who love to create, employing a wide range of textile art techniques. Please do look at our Members’ Gallery to see examples.
Textile art is often defined as using plant, animal or synthetic fibres to construct practical or decorative objects. This is our starting definition. While their art works may incorporate other media, members are required to use textiles/fabrics and/or stitch as a significant element in work submitted for all ERTF events.
ERTF members take pleasure in preparing work for our exhibitions and enthusiastically participate in our conferences.We have members from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and North London and we select our venues to cater for this.
Below are details of current and next ERTF conferences and exhibitions. Those that are further into the future are listed on the Member Events page.
We hope that after looking at our details on this website, you will consider joining us*. Whether a beginner or more experienced textile artist, you will be welcome.
* As of February 2022 membership is at full strength. However enquiries remain welcome and new members will be accepted in order of enquiry as the opportunity arisesYou can find out more about joining on our Membership page. You can also follow our Instagram postings (@easternregiontextileforum).
