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. If you would like to join, please contact our secretary to arrange an
appointment so that we can be sure that there will be an experienced member
of the Guild available to meet you and teach you how to spin.
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
