Handweavers & Spinners Guild of Victoria

  Site Update: 22 May

The Guild aims to bring together those who practise, or wish to practise, handweaving, spinning and allied crafts. It seeks to help and encourage them to increase their knowledge, understanding and skills in these crafts through discussion, demonstration, exhibition, teaching and the provision of resource materials.

Please browse through our website which contains lots of interesting information about these crafts. If we can assist in any way, or if you would like to join some of our activities, give us a call or email us. All our details are available on the Contacts page together with an application for membership.

0809 Weavers invite you to join them at an Open Day to experience the art of hand weaving.
