Our Next Guild Meeting will be on 

Saturday 19th October 2019

 

Our next Guild meeting will be a Members Skills Day.   We will be running a “Dyeing with Koolaid” mini Workshop, Indian Block Printing demo and Needlefelting demo.  We will also have a peg loom, warping frame as well as other Guild equipment for you to try.

 

I hope we can tempt you with one of the above, but if not, please bring your wheel, loom, knitting etc. or just come along for a cuppa and a catch-up.

 

 

 



The Gloucestershire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers is affiliated to the national Association of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers (www.wsd.org.uk).


Monthly meetings (January to November) are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at Norton Village Hall (GL2 9LJ).  The programme of events consists of a variety of speakers and workshops related to our crafts.


During the morning the hall is open from 10am for members and guests to join in a spinning/weaving session during which people can chat and exchange information and techniques over a cup of coffee. Guild meetings then follow at 1.45pm, before our guest speaker is introduced at 2pm. Our meetings end at 4pm. 


The aim of the guild is to promote the art of weaving, spinning and dyeing.  To support this, an independent workshop is run by a guild member twice a month on the Wednesday following the monthly meeting and again two weeks later, during which tuition and support is offered to those who attend, no matter their level of ability.  Many existing and new guild members attend these workshops.


The guild also gives demonstrations at a number of events throughout the year.
