Highland Guild Of Weavers, Spinners And Dyers

We are a group of people from all over Highland and beyond who enjoy weaving, spinning or dyeing (often all three!). We are always happy to have new members and beginners are welcome - no need to feel you might not be good enough; we all enjoy passing on our skills and learning from each other.

Perhaps we should have more get togethers with walking songs.

Eriskay women carding & spinning wool, then winding wool from a frame into balls. Together they then 'waulk' the finished tweed, singing as they work to help to keep the rhythm to make the job faster. Crofting life in 1938 filmed by Dr Werner Kissling during a sailing holiday.

Maybe useful for any beginners on the rigid heddle loom, though I can't vouch for the content as I've not seen it. Starts in a couple of days.

Further to my sample spinning on my prototype dealgan at the Black Isle Show , my friend has modified the design....glad to know I can be useful sometimes 🙂 (he also has some lovely inkle loom shuttles and supported spindles - but I had nothing to do with those 🙂
