Whether you are a student looking for design inspiration, a collector looking for a unique addition, or just want to browse beautiful materials and objects, this is a fair you can not miss.

In addition to the fair, the first floor offers an insight into textile practices, supported by guilds, museums, archives and a fabulous graduate showcase of student bursary winners.

There are free talks throughout the day, discussing textile and design topics, ideal for researchers or if you just want to know a little more about fabrics, textile design, it’s history and future.

There are refreshments at the Armitage Centre or you can bring your own lunch.
