Welcome to the Bradford Guild Website
The Guild was founded in July 1982 when three people, who had completed a spinning and weaving course, decided that they wanted to find a way to continue to develop their skills, but without a formal course structure. From that small beginning the Guild has continued to grow and is still thriving.
People have been spinning, weaving and dyeing for thousands of years; then it was done for necessity but nowadays we do it for fun. The Bradford Guild is an association of ordinary people from all walks of life who share an interest in textiles and who want to keep the crafts of spinning weaving and dyeing alive and to encourage others to join in.
Anyone is welcome to join us, even if they don't spin, weave or dye! Details of the current committee members can be found on the contacts page and you can fill in the "contact us" form in the left hand menu or email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you.
