Upcoming Exhibition: WEFT 2015

West of England Festival of Textiles - WEFT

We are very excited about our upcoming exhibition: West of England Festival of Textiles (WEFT) which opens on 15 August and runs until 7 November 2015.
WEFT is a biennial event at Trowbridge Museum. The festival aims to highlight the history of textile production in the West and to celebrate regional contemporary textile artists, groups and students through exhibiting their work. Join us to celebrate this year’s theme of Weaving!
You can read more about the WEFT exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations and events on www.weft2015.com. You can also follow our blog to learn more about weaving. Why not come along and try our Weaving Corner? It’s a relaxing spot to while away the time whilst you have a go at weaving yourself!
