The CTN network is a non-profit organisation and aims at connecting textiles artists together. We organise several events and workshops throughout the year in which members can become involved, including the increasingly recognised Textile Conference held every March.

 Membership benefits are:

  • use of CTN website gallery to display work
  • reduced rates at the conference
  • possibility to exhibit at members-only exhibitions
  • a network of knowledge and skills from which to exchange and learn
  • updates regarding individual members' workshops and exhibitions
  • access to the annual professional photo shoot which (for a fee) will provide postcards for any member who submits work. Of the 100 printed, 50 go to the member & 50 go to the network for fund raising.

There are two meetings a year, one of which is the AGMs, one in February and one in October. All members are invited to come and be updated in the activities of the network and participate in the development for future activities and direction. Members also get to hear first hand about Master classes that are run by CTN.

Regular updates are cummunicated via email.
