Welcome to Gwent Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. We are an enthusiastic group with a large, growing membership of all ages.
We meet Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from February to December in a purpose built workroom at Cwmbran Community Farm from 10 am to approx 2 pm.
Membership costs £30 per year. Visitors are welcome either as part of their visit to the farm or simply to learn more about our crafts. We have spare spinning wheels for beginners to use, a variety of looms, a good supply of spinning and weaving equipment and a growing library for members' use. Our members travel from all across the south Wales area including Cardiff, Newport and the Gwent valleys whilst we also have members from as far away as Bridgend, Pembrokeshire and Portsmouth.
We have a programme of monthly workshops on topics related to our crafts. These cost £5 to members and £10 to non-members. Non-members are welcome to attend but are advised to contact the Secretary to make sure that places are available. We are part of the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and share their objectives; the preservation and improvement of the craftsmanship in hand weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of members and the promotion of public awareness in such craftsmanship.
