Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers
The Irish Guild of weavers Spinners and Dyers is a voluntary organisation and was formed to preserve, improve and promote expertise in hand-weaving, spinning and dying and to encourage excellence in craftsmanship, texture, colour and design. The guild caters for everyone with an interest in weaving, spinning and dying from total beginners through to the professional. The guild aims to promote and encourage the crafts of weaving, spinning and dyeing and to educate members and potential members through workshops, lectures, exhibitions and demonstrations, which are organised throughout the year. Regular meetings are held and regular newsletters are produced and distributed.
The guild is also a regular participant at The Knitting & Stitching Show show that is held annually in November at the RDS, Dublin.
Meetings, workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations.
