This new study group has been formed by members of the Cambridgeshire Guild with the goal of exploring traditional textiles from around the world. Members of the group will share their own knowledge, and we hope to try our hand at some traditional techniques of knitting, weaving, spinning and braiding. The programme for 2018 includes sessions on a Chilkat blanket in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology; Indonesian textiles; Japanese kumihimo; Guatemalan weaving; and Romanian textiles.
We meet at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge, and all members of Cambridgeshire Guild are welcome to attend, although numbers are limited by space. For more details, please see our programme for 2018
