I’ve mentioned previously that I’m a member of the Birmingham Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers.
The Guild is part of a larger Association, which coordinates cross-Guild activities and events – including national exhibitions and summer schools every other year.
The Association hasn’t previously had much of an online presence, so recently I took on the (voluntary) role of creating and managing Association Instagram and Twitter accounts (both with the username guildswsd).
If you’re interested in weaving, spinning and/or dyeing follow for pictures of works by Guild members and for news on related events and exhibitions.
Summer might be over but #naturaldyeing needn’t be! In 2015, Birmingham Guild dyed wool with plants from @winterbournehg monthly for a year pic.twitter.com/8TI10VFG8J
