Guild Events

We organise a range of workshops, talks and open days from September through to June, generally on the second Saturday of the month, and generally at Strathpeffer Community Centre. There are occasional exceptions though, so check the details for individual events. Non members are very welcome, but workshops in particular are more expensive: usually £25 member, £35 non member. There may be additional costs for materials for some workshops. Open days are £5 for members, £10 for non members.

In addition we have established interest groups for each of our core crafts. These meet by zoom:
Dyeing – quarterly (December, March, June, September) on the first Saturday of the month.
Spinning – monthly on the third Saturday.
Weaving – monthly on the last Saturday.
