Art through textiles image

Art Through Textiles was founded in 1983. It is an exhibiting group of makers, based in Sheffield, with members across Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and the North Midlands. It is one of the largest non-affiliated textile groups in the UK. We share a common passion for textiles as a means of creative expression, celebrating the exciting versatility of the form, with its rich diversity of techniques, approaches and media.

ATT meets monthly for a lively and informative programme of illustrated talks by invited artists and craftspeople. All members have the opportunity to exhibit with the group biennially.

We aim to:

  • Promote and foster all aspects of creative textile artwork and craft;
  • Encourage and develop members’ textile skills and creative confidence;
  • Organise events and exhibitions which further interest in textile arts and crafts;
  • Foster collaboration and mutual support within the group and with other organisations.
