About the exhibition

Launched in 1993 in Gdynia, Poland, the Baltic Mini Textile exhibition is one of Europe’s leading reviews of textile miniatures. The juried event is held every three years featuring artists from all over the globe.

"The small scale (20 x 20 x 20 cm) lets artists experiment with complex, intricate techniques and use delicate, ephemeral materials. The huge variety of the artists own techniques and fascinating artistic solutions show us that textile miniatures are a fully independent, important genre, full of potential." – Anna Śliwa, Exhibition Curator.

Warwick Art Gallery, in partnership with artist Jolanta Szymczyk, is arranging for a selection of mini textile works to travel to Australia. This follows a successful tour in 2013 which proved inspirational for visitors and artists alike. The exhibition is compact and light to transport and will suit a small space or venue.
