Whether you are a practising weaver, spinner or dyer or are interested in learning about our traditional crafts, you've come to the right place. The Association acts as a clearing house, a central coordinating body. Our aim is to facilitate communication between:
Individual guilds of Weavers Spinners Dyers
Individual crafts people
Providers of related tools and supplies
Members of the public looking to commission craft items
"Enquiring minds" interested in what we do
The objectives of the Association are the preservation and improvement of the craftsmanship in hand weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of the public and the promotion of public education in such craftsmanship.
There are member guilds all over UK and the odd one futher afield. If there is no guild close to you, have you considered starting one? Alternatively you may like to join the Online Guild.
Note that in addition to the Association news, each individual guild has a listing of their own news and events on their AGWSD page and/or their own website which can be accessed from that page.
