Working Together on a Loom

When and Where does the Guild Meet?

Well, here we are in January 2023. It is so exciting to be looking forward to a new chapter in the Guilds history.

We are temporarily meeting on a weekly basis at the ARCH Hall, Cefnllan Road, Gelligron. These meetings take place on Fridays from 10am.

In the Spring we are hoping to move to our new permanent home at Hwb Y Gors. In the meantime do come and visit us at the ARCH.

We welcome members to come and spin, weave and socialise.. Many people just pop in when they are able and share the skills that we have built up during the almost 40 years since the branch was founded. We have welcomed many new members during the past year and the Guild is positively thriving.Tea and biscuits are at the cornerstone of our meetings!

During the past years we have demonstrated at the Crynant Steam Fair, Llandovery Sheep Festival and Hearts of the Valleys Show. We have enjoyed workshops on felting a bag, dyeing with food colouring and plying among many others.

The Guild is currently working together with the Hwb y Gors committee to assist in the creation of a textile piece of work for the cafeteria in the new facility.

We are affiliated to the National Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers


If you think you might be interested in joining the Guild why not come and visit? Please contact the Guild Secretary by e-mail at We can then make sure you are welcomed when you arrive.

Equipment and Facilities

As we now meet at the ARCH Hall all our equipment is in store until we relocate to Hwb y Gors, Cwmgors at some stage later this year

Will I get any help to get me started?

You can’t be an expert from the beginning! We all know what it is like to be faced with a spinning wheel for the first time and everyone will be happy to help you get started. We all help each other to develop and indeed although some of the workshops are run by experts the majority are led by members who have knowledge they would like to share.

Do you offer any Talks or Workshops to Outside Groups and Societies?

We would be delighted to come to your group and give a talk or organise a workshop. There will usually be a charge for this service. Please contact the Guild Secretary at so that we may discuss your requirements.
