Event: World Textile Day – West of England (Bristol)

 

 

Event date: Saturday 6 October. 10:00 – 16:30.

When the World Textile Day experts held their first event in Saltford in 2014, they had no idea what a great venue they had found. Their hosts – the Saltford Community Association – couldn’t be more enthusiastic. As a bonus, Saltford prides itself in being a ‘fair trade village’ – a perfect fit for their fair trade ethos. The featured speaker at this final World Textile Day of 2018 will be Bob Irwin, an expert in African beads.

FREE admission to an exhibition of woven, printed and embroidered textiles.
