About the Festival:
The festival is an international showcase of contemporary fibre art. We are a not-for-profit initiative with charitable status. We exhibit innovative fibre based art from around the world and highlight the strength of our local talent. The Festival is run by dedicated volunteers Dawne Rudman (Chair & Festival Curator) and Gareth Bate ((Festival Curator). Exhibitions are carefully planned by various curators.
Beginning in 1994 as a single Oakville exhibition, the festival continues to grow in size and ambition. The exhibitions feature work submitted by hundreds of artists from around the world.
We will continue to be based in Oakville, Ontario. For Festival 2014 we will also have an exhibition in Mississauga. The town of Oakville, Ontario, Canada is located on Lake Ontario 45 minutes west of Toronto and is part of the Greater Toronto Area. Oakville has a vibrant cultural scene for which the World of Threads Festival is a prominent player. The festival draws visitors from across the region and internationally.
