The society is open to men and women, to everyone interested in the use of silk and in possibilities to enhance their handmade silk works.  The driving force is a group of enthusiasts, who paint on silk and have made each yearly exhibition a different and interesting experience.  Since there is no support from any government agency, thanks has to be given to the faithful sponsors, without whose help the event would not be possible.

The members come from all over Flanders and Holland.  Should you be interested to join, there is the possibility to become either :

  • an active member : you should be able to be present at our monthly meetings in Wilrijk, Antwerp; (€55/year)
  • a supportive or non-active member : you will receive the HABOTAI Newsletter 3 x yr. (in Dutch). (€25/year)
