Enjoy the wonderful textile works by the Australian Textile Arts & Surface Design Association (ATASDA)

The theme of the members’ display this year is ‘Branching Out’.

See the way different skills and techniques are used to interpret the same theme, and to produce fabulous works of art, whether stitched, embellished, ruched, stamped, printed or felted!

Free sessions
