The artists and makers at Textile Art Community Art Space (TACAS) create their artworks using household and industrial waste as well as natural materials.

They reclaim and recycle discarded textiles and found objects, and invite the wider community to share in art projects and events. TACAS was born from the idea that everyone is creative – that the act of making things mindfully, in the company of others, brings joy.

TACAS is a thriving cooperative where artists work in their own studios, as well as in collaboration in the workshop space sharing common facilities such as printing press, kiln, photography area and sewing machines.
