The Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers hold a national exhibition every two years to showcase the very best work from guilds all round the UK and online. It is a exhibition of some of the best talent in the country. Weavers who can manipulate cloth to make something truly stunning, dyers who create the most incredible combinations of colour, and spinners who make beautiful, interesting and textured yarns either to show as they are or to make into the most incredible garments or art pieces. It truly is an inspiration to walk round, even if the standard of work is slightly intimidating! It would be impossible to show all the pieces in this blog post so I've just chosen some of my favourites here.
I certainly think its safe to say that the standard of work is massively high at this exhibition. I definitely came away with far too many ideas for the time I have available! The exhibition is being held at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (in the Collins Building) and is on until the 29th July. If you can make it then I fully recommend it!

Thats all for now fibrey peeps! I am currently working on a big update for the website which should be made available in a few weeks!
