Organiser Western Australian Fibre and Textiles Association

Organiser of WAFTA Members' Meeting at the Embroiderers' Guild of WA

The Western Australian Fibre and Textile Association (WAFTA) was founded in 1995 and is a dynamic and progressive group with passion, enthusiasm and talent that reflects the growing interest and appreciation of textile and fibre art within the community.

WAFTA’s members include both established and emerging artists who between them employ a diverse range and combination of fibre and textile processes incorporating combinations of traditional, contemporary and experimental techniques. There is also an increasing crossover of textiles and other mediums, with glass, digital print, digital projection, ceramics, metal and the natural environment – to name but a few.

WAFTA’s objectives include increasing the understanding of the potential of fibre and textiles through exhibition, whilst encouraging the highest standard of design and craftsmanship.
