Metaphor Textile Group

Metaphor Textile Group

About Us

Metaphor is a new, exciting and forward thinking textile group, which was formed in 2010. The original members spent the first two years working with a mentor on various projects.

In August 2012 the mentoring stopped, new members joined……and the excitement began.

Metaphor encourages each member to develop as individual textile artists. Regular monthly meetings and workshops both in techniques and design considerations are important to the group, who share their skills with each other, as well as working with other artists and designers. The group work to a theme that could last for several months, culminating in a finished piece of work. These have included titles such as Messages, Corners, New Life and Just One Stitch.

The group’s first exhibition was at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh, Cumbria in January 2013 and they’ve gone from strength to strength since.
