With spring in the air, Jenny Dean shows us how to dye a stunning range of greens with natural dyes.

Join two Online Guild members as they experience cotton cultivation in Barbados, then listen to Gretchen Roth describe the challenges of growing warmth-loving cotton plants in Lancashire!

Would you like to learn to spin, but without a big financial outlay?  Would you like your spinning to be more portable? And, even easy to do whilst sat in an armchair? If the answer is yes to any, or all, of these questions, be inspired by Sally Hands who, as a result of her own experience, writes In Praise of the Humble Spindle.

Have you wondered about the potential longevity of your lovingly created works of art? Margaret Smith and Frances Leonard explain research that has been undertaken to understand the yarns and fibres used in the Stirling Tapestry Project.

Read reports from the Association Summer School 2015 and the Certificate of Achievement programme.
