Open Day at Dundreggan Rewilding Centre

Karen Buchananevent reports

Though I always enjoy our regular meetings at Strathpeffer, I found I was really looking forward to going somewhere new for our May Guild day.  I was not disappointed!  We were allocated a large room with ample space for twenty plus of us with our wheels and looms, and for members of the public visiting the centre to look at our display and talk to us about our crafts.  The staff were very welcoming and helpful, the sun shone, and, another big plus, there was a great café!

The reason behind holding an occasional open day away from our usual venue was to make the journey easier for those who live further away, so it was good to see people from the south and west who haven’t been to a Guild meeting for a while.  Lydia, Sadie and Linda were all tapestry weaving, Sue had brought a rigid heddle loom as well as her wheel, everyone else was spinning.  A lovely relaxed day!
