Promoting traditional textile crafts across Dorset
We are a group of people enthusiastic about textiles, particularly weaving, spinning and dyeing. Dorset Guild was founded on 6th October 1947 and later became a founder member of the Association of Guilds of Weaving, Spinning & Dyeing.
Our group is open to all, young and old, beginners and experts alike. Sharing our knowledge with others is an important part of our group and both informal and formal teaching takes place at our monthly meetings and at workshops. We usually meet on the last Saturday in the month in Dorchester, there is more information here.
We aim to achieve high standards of craftsmanship in our work and also to increase the public’s awareness of our crafts. We can be found demonstrating at various agricultural & country shows during the year and also at the Dorset Arts and Crafts Association’s Annual Exhibition.
