Exhibition - Threads on the Wing

Date: 10 Apr 2016

The Threads on the Wing exhibition is on from the 10th to the 17th of April 2016 in the Emmbrook Room, Dinton Pastures Country Park, Hurst, Berkshire RG10 0TH. This biennial exhibition of the Berkshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers is open from 10am to 4.30pm each day closing at 3pm on Sunday 17th. Come feast your eyes on a smorgasbord of hand spun, hand woven and hand dyed textiles! Demonstrations, have a go sessions and workshops for those wanting to get hands on. 

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 craftsmen and women 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.
