West of England Festival of Textiles
August 26 @ 10:00 am - October 29 @ 4:00 pm
We are really excited to announce the return of our West of England Festival of Textiles (WEFT) from June – October 2022, co-curated with Carolyn Griffiths, author of ‘Woad To This & The Cloth Trade of Frome’.
The WEFT is a biennial exhibition celebrating all textile forms, and although our Museum focuses on Trowbridge’s fantastic weaving heritage, WEFT presents and exhibits all textile forms created in the West of England.
This year the theme for WEFT explores sustainability in textile arts and crafting to highlight the greener approach many textile artists and creatives are taking. With this in mind we pose the question, ‘Where do we start, where do we finish?’ to illustrate the cyclical nature of sustainability.
WEFT runs from 18th June to 29th October.
Trowbridge Museum is situated in the Shires Shopping Centre, on the 2nd floor of Home Mills. For easy parking, use the car park next to Asda, which is accessed from Bythesea Road, and use the Shires Shopping Centre entrance close to ASDA. Head straight to Boswell’s Cafe, take the left fork and you will find the museum on your left.
The museum is a 5 minute walk from Trowbridge Train Station
