Special Interest Groups

The Guild offers a range of opportunities to get together and explore our craft, 
whether that's spinning, weaving, knitting, or dyeing.

Members are always welcome, so too are visitors and guests.  A small fee is charged for attendance; you can enjoy a cuppa whilst learning a new skill or exploring new techniques. 

Non-members can take the option to come to a few activities before joining the Guild and benefiting from all that comes with being a member of the Guild.
