Tamworth Fibre Textiles Triennial
There are few events in Australia that can demonstrate a legacy for sustaining a cultural heritage associated with textile practice for more than 30 years. The 1st Tamworth Textile Triennial is one of these events and is firmly positioned within the Australian creative arts calendar attracting entries from a variety of creative disciplines, age groups, emerging creatives and established practitioners.
There are 22 creative textile artists in the 1st Tamworth Textile Triennial and they represent a cross section of demographics from many states and one territory in Australia. Specific textile skills covered in this exhibition range from resist printed textiles to hand embroidered cross-stitch, from metal wire knitted on a machine to cloth woven on a jacquard loom.
The curator Patrick Snelling has a strong association with textile education and studio practice in Australia. His curatorial focus for Sensorial Loop is to promote excellence and the diversity of making through the ideas that creative practitioners bring to the textile discipline. The exhibition title implies familial, cultural, temporal and historical narratives combined with sensory and haptic responses to working with materials, processes and tools that connect us to the patterning and construction of contemporary textiles.
