Join the British Tapestry Group.
The British Tapestry Groups exists to promote woven tapestry as a contemporary art form in the UK, by raising public awareness through professional exhibitions, networking and regional initiatives, training and development.
By joining the BTG you will be able to take part in national and regional exhibitions; be updated with regular e-newsletters with information about tapestry weaving; receive Tapestry Weaver magazine with articles from tapestry weavers around the world, announcements and illustrated reviews of exhibitions, providing a wealth of inspiring ideas (currently published twice a year in both print and digital formats).
Annual Membership runs from April 1st to March 31st. An 18 month subscription option is available from October 1st each year for new members.
The BTG offers several membership categories. View the full matrix: BTG Membership Benefits matrix
Full UK Member: This level of membership is for practising weavers. You receive the maximum level of benefits of belonging to the BTG, including the opportunity to submit work to exhibitions, display your work on the web site, participate in studio trails and advertise your workshops at a favourable rate. And of course you receive two issues of TW each year. We encourage Full Members to actively support the committee and regional groups in order to help develop and enhance BTG’s profile.
Student UK Member: To demonstrate that BTG welcomes and encourages student weavers you will receive all the benefits of being a full member at a reduced price if you are a full time student.
Full Rest of the World (including Europe): We want you to have as many of the benefits of full membership as distance allows. We also need to charge a bit more to cover postal costs.
Associate Member UK: You may be just starting to weave or interested in woven art and want to find out more. BTG is delighted to welcome you as an Associate Member and provide you with a network of weavers so that you may develop your tapestry weaving skills and knowledge.
Associate Group UK: This category of membership allows groups who are interested in woven art to participate in BTG activities. The group will nominate one of their members as the BTG contact. They will also receive two copies of TW each year.
