World Textile Day Scotland
A fantastic day out for anyone interested in textiles of all kinds - embroideries, batiks, silk and cotton ikat weavings, African waxprint, Chinese indigo, Japanese kimonos, Peruvian weavings and so much more. A bunch of specialist traders bring their goodies up to Bridge of Allan, near Stirling once a year for this very popular show. The theme of this year’s World Textile Day is "Working Together"and our talks and exhibition will showcase lots of fabulous textiles from around the world, all made by teams of people - a family, a community or a whole village.
The special guest speaker this year at 11am is Diane Gaffney who will be showing some of her favourite textiles from around south east Asia and explaining exactly how many people have been involved in making each one! The results may surprise you!
At 2pm there will be a shorter half hour talk followed by a chance to show your own world textile at our Show and Tell session.
We are open from 10 am until 4.30pm
Entrance is free to the market, the exhibition and there will be teas, coffees and cakes available. Talks cost just £3 each or £5 for both sessions and can be booked on the day itself.
There are lots of lovely cafes nearby. Car parking is available very close by and the train station is just a short walk away.
