Filament Fibre Artists
Filament Fibre Artists is a group of eight textile artists based in Ireland that was founded in 2007. The members of Filament Fibre Artists come from a variety of backgrounds from textiles, ceramics and fine art to self-taught experts in traditional skills. The group met whilst taking part in a City and Guilds course in stitched textiles. The individual artists found that working together in studio and drawing on the energy and motivation this produced yielded great results for all its participants and so when they completed the course in 2007 they founded Filament Fibre Artists with the aim to provide mutual creative support and to promote fibre arts through exhibitions and workshops.
Filament Fibre Artists members now meet regularly to present work-in-progress, discuss techniques, approaches and innovation in fibre arts, to invite feedback and share advice. This has proved invaluable to its members who have now been working together for several years.
Filament Fibre Artists have staged exhibitions and have produced extensive work both as individuals and as a group, including exhibitions, workshops and various events for Year of Craft 2011 and annual exhibitions for The Knitting & Stitching Show at the RDS in Dublin.
Exhibitions, workshops, raising the profile of fibre arts in Ireland.
