Welcome to Swansea Festival of Stitch 2020
Welcome to our Swansea Festival of Stitch 2020, our third event will undoubtedly be the brightest and best. Following our theme ‘The Power of Flowers’ we will have bouquets of flowers adorning lampposts, so you can follow our textile trail to all exhibiting venues. We are delighted that we will have a bigger presence in Mumbles so you can follow the flowers there too.
New for 2020 we will have an Open Exhibition, where anyone can submit artwork encompassing the Power of Flowers for display. Our 4” x 4″ x £4 competition will be exhibited at 210 High Street, again open to anyone using the Festival theme!
Our 4 day Shop of Skills between the 21st and 24th of August 2020 brings a mass of opportunities to learn textile skills with no charge so grab a chance to learn from our experts. This will all be fully bookable online!
During the middle weekend of 22nd and 23rd August we will once again have our QUILT EXPO within Swansea Leisure Centre and the MAKERS AND TRADERS MARKET within the Weston Hall of the National Waterfront Museum of Wales. Lots to see and purchase!
We have 12 days of Masterclasses from exceptional and renowned artists. They will offer exciting innovative workshops that will give the opportunity to gain new knowledge, skills and push boundaries.
You can follow our Textile Trail to all our venues which will be full of work from local groups and individuals. There are three main areas, 1. around the Museum area 2. High Street including the Open Exhibition and 4″x4″x£4 and 3. three sites in Mumbles.
