Our Guild was founded in 1951 and we now have over 100 members.
Our aim is to preserve and improve the craftsmanship of weaving, spinning and dyeing for the benefit of the public and the promotion of the public education in these crafts. We also seek to foster a sense of beauty of material, texture, colour and design.
We achieve this through social meetings where we can share and exchange knowledge and skills between our members. We welcome new members whatever level of skill they have and we are happy to help anyone learn how to spin, weave or dye.
Our friendly group meets once a month and we also have a facebook page and chat group for members to share what they are working on and what they have made.
If you are interested in joining our Guild or have any questions, please contact our Secretary.
