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 appli

cations. 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.

The Guild also publishes a quarterly newsletter, Knotting Matters.
