Reveal a side of yourself that’s usually hidden, explore an alter ego or go abstract – anything goes as long as it’s creative, original, and you!

Create your self-portrait in any textile medium from thread painting and embroidery to weaving and screen printing.


All entries will be displayed in our online gallery and the winner will receive £1000!
