Taranaki Creative Fibre

Saturday 25 August – Sunday 16 September 2018

Taranaki Creative Fibre members are busy producing fine work to exhibit in their biennial exhibition opening at Percy Thomson Gallery on Saturday August 25.

The talented and innovative group covers a wide array of disciplines; spinners, weavers, knitters, dyers, flax workers, felters, crocheters, and free-form fibre artists. 

Many of the artists hold National awards and are experts in manipulating texture and form.

Each work 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.
