TwentyFIVE+ crossover marks both an anniversary and a watershed moment for the Western Australian Fibre and Textile Association (WAFTA).

Founded in 1995, WAFTA is Western Australia’s premier textile organisation – an umbrella membership group that encompasses the widest range of textile and fibre artists.

To celebrate, a juried exhibition is taking place between 22nd October and 12th November, 2022 

Geared to motivate ambitious works and to stretch the artists’, two criteria were thrown down – use no more than three textile techniques; and to challenge the use of materials and techniques of traditional fibre and textiles.

42 artworks have been selected by a jury whose focus was on placing textiles firmly in the contemporary art arena.

For the first time three monetary prizes will be awarded in the ‘Professional’, ‘Maker’ and ‘Student’ categories.  to see the full exhibition (after 21 October 2022)

Elizabeth Riley, Louise Wells.
