Within each ATASDA branch, provision is made for smaller member groups to be established.
These groups may be formed on a geographical basis, a group of friends who are members, or members sharing a mutual interest in a particular area of textile arts, or with no particular common interest, just a passion and love of things 'textile'.
To establish a Group a minimum of 5 members is required.
Currently, NSW has two active groups: South Group and Frayed.
ATASDA South Group If you live on the south side of Sydney, why not come and visit us? The members of this dynamic group are never too busy sharing their skills to welcome a new face. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month, from 10am-3pm, at Sutherland Pensioners' Centre, 749 Old Princes Hwy, Sutherland.
ATASDA Frayed Frayed group members meet monthly on a Friday to encourage and support each other while working towards their biennial exhibition. Feedback is given on their current works and on occasions, exhibitions of interest are attended. Meetings are held in their Sydney homes on a rotating basis.
There is scope for various kinds of groups, large or small, dependant upon how you envisage managing your group.
NSW is happy to hear from members who would like to establish a new group. For more information about setting up a group in NSW, contact the NSW Committee.
