Weaving

Weaving is an enjoyable way to produce a fabric from your home-spun, (though we don’t mind a bit of mill produced either).  From simply weaving in a frame to working on a larger shaft loom, there are many styles and traditions of weaving that we can explore.  Some members have their own equipment but there are looms and other tools available for hire within our guild. Contact us to find out what we have on offer.
