About our group:

Laterals was formed in 1991 with the aim of designing and creating innovative Textile Art to exhibit to as wide an audience as possible. To  this end we have exhibited in art galleries, various community venues, as well as providing a traveling exhibition for Guild members outside the CBD. We have also presented the room display at Guild Headquarters. 

We share our ideas, developing skills and techniques, but also work individually and independently.  Themes for the following year are put forward and discussed, and we plan workshops both with group members and/or a tutor. Often we have a challenge at the end of the year to be worked over the Christmas break, a bit of 'lateral thinking' here is used and the results are always interesting.  

We suggest anyone interested should contact the Convenor and first come to a meeting, bring an example of their work, and see if our style would suit them.
