Fibres With a Twist

Friday 31 July to Monday 24 August

The Cleveland Fibre Arts textile group presents silk painting, crochet work, hand-knitting, felting, spinning and weaving.

Cleveland Fibre Arts

Cleveland Fibre Arts was established in the early 1990s. The group of about thirty members – all women who live in the North York Moors and East Cleveland area – meets monthly to share knowledge and skills and to keep alive a number of traditional rural crafts.

They specialise in working with textiles, in a variety of mediums, especially with wool – from processing fleeces and hand-dyeing to spinning, weaving, knitting and felting.

They also work with silk, fabric and woollens, with all their work inspired by the natural elements, moods and colours of the moors, coast and Cleveland Hills.
