Textile Study Group of New York members are a diverse group. Some are enthusiastic beginners. Others are professionals with experience. Some work in textile-related fields as historians, teachers, critics, curators, and writers. But most members are artists. Their work is often informed by a grounding in both fine arts and traditional craft training. This lends an exciting openness to their art-making, and is reflected in the myriad genres showcased in their work: airbrush, appliqué, baskets, beading, collage, dyeing, embroidery, encaustic, felting, found materials, hooking, ikat, installation, jewelry, joomchi, knotting, mixed media, paper, papier-mâché, printing, quilting, rope, rugs, sculpture, sewing, shibori, tapestry, weaving, and wire!
