Bridge of Allan Parish Church of Scotland,  12 Keir St, Bridge of Allan, FK9 4NW

Celebrate our 7th World Textile Day in Bridge of Allan – amazing!

Our 2019 theme: Inspired to Create – with special guest artist Pat Archibald

We just love coming to Scotland. And judging by the fortitude of last year’s crowd braving the torrential rain that lasted all day, you love us coming.

This year, the highlight of the day will be an exhibition and presentation by award-winning Scottish textile artist Pat Archibald. As an artist and teacher, for Pat creating is both a metaphorical and a physical journey. Join her!

Don’t miss World Textile Day Scotland in Bridge of Allan. Here are some pix of previous outings there. Enjoy!
