The Cork Textiles Network, established in 1998, offers support to all who have an interest in textiles. CTN aims to promote exchange with other textile Networks and artists in Ireland and across Europe. CTN has made significant inroads in bringing fibre art to children both in libraries and in the classroom. Skills are shared between members. CTN organises and promotes leading edge workshops and classes in Cork.
Membership is not restricted to the Cork area. New members are always welcome. Successes include many exhibitions showcased in galleries throughout Cork city.
CTN is supported by the Crafts Council of Ireland.
