Kennet Valley Guild
Who we are and what we do
The Kennet Valley Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers was formed in 1977 when Jan and John Shailes got together with some friends in their sitting room to spin. As time went on, more people came along, and the group decided to join Berkshire Guild. In 1979, the growing band, struggling to get to Sonning for Guild meetings, took the plunge and formed their own Guild in Newbury, which has been in existence continuously since then. Our members cover an enormous range of textile skills including weaving, spinning and dyeing, with experience ranging from beginners to experts.
