creating a textile-based community in wales

Our mission is to facilitate the development, awareness and promotion of textile-based skills in Wales.
Founded in Gwynedd, North Wales, Tecstiliau is a not-for-profit organisation created by a small group interested in facilitating the textile arts as part of the cultural heritage of Wales.  In doing so, we are aiming
to provide physical ‘space’ for textile-based activities to occur but also provide a cultural ‘space’
to accentuate the importance of textile arts in Wales, for cultural benefit and  personal well-being.
