Inspirational Threads: Biennial Exhibition

Date: 13 Jun 2013

The Inspirational Threads exhibition is on from the 13th - 18th June 2013 in the Old Firestation Gallery in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 3AG. 
This biennial exhibition of the Berkshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers is open from 10am to 4.30pm each day. Come and feast your eyes on a smörgåsbord of hand spun, hand woven and hand dyed textiles! 
There will be demonstrations, have a go sessions and workshops for those wanting to get hands on.
Guild members all share a passion for fibre - from wool, silk and flax (linen) to crab or banana! These are spun, woven, dyed, knitted, felted, crocheted and much more, into a plethora of different textiles. The skills involved have often taken many years to learn and the crafted items many months to complete. You may find a few items for sale in amongst these treasures.
Visit the demonstration area and watch craftswomen spinning and weaving, and have a go yourself.
There are also taster workshops in spinning, weaving, knitting and felting. Booking details for these will follow shortly.
