We run a number of special events and workshops throughout the year.



SIT select works to create opportunities for artists to develop their creative practices. Established in 2005 to focus on textiles and has developed to celebrate all the applied arts/crafts. SIT select runs year round events, exhibitions, seminars, conferences and educational work with an annual festival every May at its heart for all ages and abilities and works closely with Universities and Colleges. It has built a reputation nationally and increasingly internationally, for excellence and innovation.

The annual Festival is called Select Festival
