Westbury Fabric & Fibre Crafters Guild

WFFCG – Westbury Fabric & Fibre Crafters guild

WFFCG was formed to create a community of crafters based at Westbury providing opportunities to engage in the crafts you enjoy as well as learn different crafts from others. The aim is to create a rich and varied programme for both Guild members and the wider community, through workshops, skills-share sessions, talks, open days, demonstrations and exhibitions.

The Guild meet every Thursday at Westbury Arts Centre.
