SO you've got a taste for textiles, and now it's time to feast on the Knot Fibre Festival Textile workshops.

The first part of the Knot Fibre Festival was held in the Ipswich Community Gallery by Arts Connect Ipswich in June and July.

It offered lots of free things to do and see for all ages, such as the Press Effect Exhibition, mini workshops, Trunk Talks, collaborations, a parade and plenty of opportunities to participate.

Now, from next Friday September 12 to September 15, there will be professionally presented workshops to immerse everyone in textiles.

The workshops will also be at the Ipswich Community Gallery on the corner of Limestone St and d'Arcy Doyle Pl in the central business district.

Organiser Mieke den Otter said festival stage 1 in June/July was a great success with lots of participation and fibre fun.

"We are now moving into stage two with nine workshops for the wider community in the Ipswich Community Gallery," she said.

"Book and pay online for convenience."
