The Association acts as a clearing house, a central coordinating body. Their aim is to facilitate communication between:

  • Individual guilds of Weavers Spinners Dyers
  • Individual crafts people
  • Providers of related tools and supplies
  • Members of the public looking to commission craft items
  • Educational bodies
  • “Enquiring minds” interested in what we do

The objectives of the Association are the preservation and improvement of the craftsmanship in hand weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of the public and the promotion of public education in such craftsmanship.
