249small.jpgWe focus on the warp weighted loom : Christina Petty explores the fascinating history of this upright loom whilst Jaquie Teal revisits the  techniques of its use, weaving her handspun Soay.

The social history of spinners and their wheels is explored in Amanda Hannaford’s tour of her collectible spinning-focused postcards   

Aviva Leigh shares her recent colourful textile-inspired trip to Japan with us, with a particular emphasis on Indigo dyeing.

Much closer to home, Ian Mackintosh relates the fascinating history of the Worshipful Company of Dyers. 

If you are visiting Manchester and Norwich as part of this year’s
Association events, then take a look through our suggestions for textile attractions in each area to make the most of your visit.

The recipients of last year’s Association Bursary Awards describe the many benefits of attending their Summer School courses, and our usual Exhibition and Book Reviews will inspire your interests and studies.
