The Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers

We are affiliated to the Association of Guilds of WSD. The Association organises summer schools, conferences and exhibitions, which all members can attend. More information about these can be found on the Association web site.

The Association also produces ‘The Journal’ – a quarterly magazine containing articles relating to all our core crafts, book reviews, and information about exhibitions. Books reviewed for the magazine are held in the Association library and can be borrowed by members of affiliated Guilds.

Information about the Certificate of Achievement, designed to improve craftsmanship, can be found on the Association web site. The C of A is offered separately for weaving, tapestry weaving, spinning, natural dyeing, and synthetic dyeing.

A web information point has recently been set up for members. This contains forms, health and safety information, guidelines etc. All members of affiliated Guilds will be able to access it with a username and password available via their own Guild. You can request the information via our “contact us” page.
