World Textile Day Wales
A wonderful day out for anyone who loves textiles. A collection of world textile traders and collectors get together for a day in this friendly market town. As usual, we have an exhibition of world textiles, a market place and two talks.
There are seven World Textile Days around the country and each year we have a theme. The theme for 2019 is "Inspired To Create". Our talks and exhibition will reflect the way that world textiles have inspired our guest artists to create their own beautiful work.
At 11 am Jacqui Carey, author, speaker, and braider-extraordinaire will give a talk about her travels and researches into braiding techniques in Japan and China. At 2 pm there will be a session of short talks about being inspired by world textiles and a chance to "Wear and Tell" - show up wearing one of your favourite textiles and tell everyone a little about it. Weaving and braiding demonstrations all day.
Come and meet up with your textile loving friends at this small and friendly show.
Free entrance. Open from 10 am until 4.30 pm.
Talks at 11 am and 2pm. Talks tickets are available on the day and cost £3 each or £5 for both. Good parking available close by. Tea, coffee and cakes served by the Quilt Association.
