Exhibitions

We aim to hold an exhibition of work every two years and try to locate the exhibition in different venues around East Berkshire.

The Threads on the Wing exhibition ran in April 2016 in Dinton Pastures Park.

Guild members all share a passion for fibre – from wool to silk, flax (linen) to crab or banana! These are spun, woven, dyed, knitted, felted, crocheted into many different textiles. The skills involved have often taken many years to learn and the crafted items many months to make. You may find a few items for sale in amongst these treasures.

Visit the demonstration area and watch craftswomen (and men) spinning and weaving, and have a go yourself. There are also taster workshops in spinning, weaving, knitting and felting. Please visit our website www.bswd.org.uk for further details.
