Costume and Textile Association


The Costume & Textile Association organises a programme of talks, workshops and visits. It provides opportunities for members to visit exhibitions and collections, locally and in other parts of the country. Members also receive a Newsletter at least twice a year which contains interesting and informative articles on related topics, reviews of past events and listings of talks and events.  Your membership also allows you free entry to all Norwich Museums including the Castle, the Bridewell and Strangers’ Hall.

Do join us – meet new people, acquire new skills and learn more about the wonderful world of costume and textiles. We encourage our members to join in – to share their skills and enthusiasms.
