The value of making...a prescription for the arts and crafts! Members of Guilds have known about this for a very long time and this year several of them are celebrating major milestones.
The traditional crafts of weaving, spinning and dyeing are integral to our intangible cultural heritage. The Journal would like to join the many guild members and organisations worldwide in extending our congratulations to the Somerset, Birmingham and Kent Guilds of the UK. the Handweavers Guild of America and Creative Fibre, New Zealand.
The fascinating history of the founders of the Somerset Guild, along with short histories from the Birmingham and Kent Guilds will be featured in a forthcoming edition of The Journal.
