Save the date…

After a successful 2017 exhibition, the Wiltshire-based textile group ‘Following The Threads’ will be returning to the West Barn, Bradford-on-Avon in the summer of 2018 with a new exhibition ‘Serendipity’.

The exhibition will feature individual works made by members, a group project of textiles inspired by medieval tiles and a marketplace of fabrics, notions and smaller pieces.

The exhibition will be open from 10am – 4pm daily, Thursday 16th till Sunday 19th August.

More details to follow…

‘Metalwork’ is the 2016 exhibition by Following the Threads – a group of textile artists and makers who meet regularly in Colerne, Wiltshire to develop, share and exchange ideas and techniques.


We try to exhibit at least once a year, exploring a different theme with a wide variety of textile techniques and approaches.  As well as examples of our members’ work, we also sell handmade items, haberdashery and fabrics through our ‘pop-up’ exhibition shop.

We’ve also added some images of work by some of our members in the ‘About’ section.
