The Eastern Region Textile Forum offers exhibiting opportunities to its Members. 

We have held smaller events, such as in 2009 at The Warners Textile Archive, Braintree, Essex, Members produced work based on items from the Archive.  In 2011/12  an Exhibition, for which Members made work inspired by Owen Jones, following research meetings, toured various venues in our Region.  In May 2015 an open exhibition was held at The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey in Cambridgeshire when members were asked to respond to the location and items were displayed around the site.

We also hold selected exhibitions, where work is submitted to a selection panel for consideration.  You are welcome to join us in forthcoming events, but Membership is required.

If you would like to be part of the ERTF and future exhibitions, please see our Membership page which has details on how to join.
