Contemporary Threads is an incredibly talented textile arts group based in Liverpool and we can’t wait to share their work with our visitors.

The group aims to provide mutual inspiration for creating beautiful pieces, to encourage members to stretch themselves and to share ideas and techniques.

Since its inception, the group has exhibited regularly and is delighted to be a part of the first-ever Great Northern Textile Show.

Only the hanging method and approximate size have been set as parameters for exhibits so don’t miss their interpretation of the Shows ‘celebrating textiles‘ theme.

Four founder members started the group in the summer of 2018 and since then it has grown into a vibrant and supportive group of almost 30 members who have learned a lot from each other and in workshops led by a wide range of textile artists external to the group.
