International Guild of Knot Tyers

What Does the IGKT Do?

ballWe are an educational non-profit making organisation (constituted as a UK Charity, No. 802153) dedicated to furthering interest in practical, recreational and theoretical aspects of knotting. Our aim is to preserve traditional knotting techniques and promote the development of new techniques for new material and applications. We attend public events to advertise the Guild and its work, and conduct talks and demonstrations by arrangement with interested groups. We keep in touch with each other by correspondence, by holding regular meetings and exhibitions at both international and regional levels.

Guild address: Oaken Cleave, Cobbaton, Umberleigh, EX37 9SG, UK

The Guild also publishes a quarterly newsletter, Knotting Matters.
