Registered Charity Number 1180975


Our charitable objects are:


To further the preservation, skill, excellence and improvement of craftsmanship in weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of the public in Frome.

And to advance public education in such craftsmanship.

We are an affiliated member of the Association of Guilds of Weavers Spinners and Dyers

Who are we?


Frome Weavers Spinners and Dyers, previously known as Frome Textile Workshop, is a group of people who enjoy developing weaving skills in the company of other like-minded people.  We have a wide range of experiences, interests and skills, and contribute to the group by sharing what we know and taking time to help each other so that we learn and enjoy our craft together.

How are we financed?

Frome Weavers Spinners and Dyers is financed totally by subscriptions and sales of some of the work produced by members.

New members

The group welcomes both experienced weavers and spinners and complete beginners who will receive instruction and guidance from experienced members.

Where are we?

Over the years, we have had various premises and have built up an extensive range of equipment and reference material. The workshop is now based in two classrooms at the Steiner Academy on Park Road, which is a short walk from the heart of Frome.  It is not far from public transport and there is parking nearby.
