Fibreworks 2020
Celebrating Creative Fibre Taranaki’s
50th Anniversary

October 17 – 15 November 2020

The 2020 exhibition will mark the 50th anniversary of Creative Fibre in Taranaki. The talented and innovative group covers a wide array of disciplines; weaving, knitting, spinning, felting, dyeing. Many of the artists hold National awards and are experts in manipulating texture and form.

Each piece will be judged and prizes awarded across several categories which range from design expertise to the use of colour and specific fibres such as silk, alpaca, flax, wool, linen and cotton including a recycled category.

There is also an award for a first-time entrant to encourage new members and another award for the most creative use of New Zealand design or materials, with particular reference to Taranaki.

The exhibition coincides with the Taranaki Garden Festival. We have advertised in the Garden brochure to bring visitors to the gallery and shop.
