Main Guild Programme for 2019


All Guild members meet in the Mary Tavy Coronation Hall on the first Saturday of each month between 10:30 and 3:30.


May 4th: Four Corners, Focus on Spinning. We are following on from the success of this format by having four different spinning activities. The flax processing kit will be out and there will be an opportunity to try flax, there will be cotton available and the quill spindle on the guild wheel, and probably some charkas, top whorl spindles, etc. One corner will be devoted to fine spinning and the final one to that challenge for the experienced spinner, a fat single! We could all make one when we were beginners...


June 1st: Sarah Waters (, internationally renowned felt artist and tutor, will be giving the whole group a talk and mini workshop on Saturday. On Sunday she will give a workshop in making a felt bag to a smaller group, Booking required.


July 4th: Four Corners, Dyeing, We will have natural dyeing, sythnthetic dyeing, batik, using the guild equipment, and eco printing.


August 3rd: Picnic and indigo bats. We can, as usual, dye warps, yarn, stitched or tied fabric. There will be indigo and maybe woad as well.


September 7th: The exhibition looms and it is time for us to look at the work we are intending submit. It may not be absolutely complete but should be nearly finished. We would like every member of the guild to submit an item.
