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.
Summer School 2015
A fascinating program has been assembled for the coming Summer School. From learning about the attributes of wool to techniques in rug making, there will be something for everyone.
Gofers wanted! If you have a day available to assist a Summer School Tutor, please ring the Guild and see if there is a vacancy for you. Jobs include assisting the Tutor as requested and generally keeping the teaching area and kitchen tidy.
Note that the Guild will be open to the public throughout Summer School, 5 - 27 January 2015.
