Welcome to the Tawe Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers
…you have found the Tawe Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
We are people who love all things textile with emphasis on spinning, weaving and dyeing. We meet weekly to pursue our crafts and monthly to learn new skills. Anybody with an interest is welcome to visit and then join us if they wish.
Please look at the rest of the website to see our programme of activities and events, and where we will be demonstrating.
We currently meet once a week at the ARCH Hall,Cefnllan Road,Gelligron. Here we have lots of support and knowledge that we are happy to share. We welcome all people regardless of experience and many of our members started out as complete beginners.
This is our temporary home until we relocate to permanent rooms at Hwb y Gors, Cwmgors, once the facility is completed. Once there we will have access to lots of equipment for members to use and enjoy.
When we relocate we will, once again, run regular workshops by experts in the Guild as well as inviting in guests to teach all aspects of fibre based crafts. To date we have held workshops in dyeing with food colours, felting, soari weaving, knitting plus many, many more.
If you are interested in our work, please go to our gallery where, in addition to members ongoing work there are some photos from our recent open day.
Events & Demonstrations
One of our aims is to share our love of these crafts and give people the chance to have a go. We demonstrate at festivals and events where people can try their hand and spinning and weaving and get to chat to our members. See the What’s On page for more information.
