We are the Wiltshire Guild Spinners Weavers Dyers, part of the National Association and one of over 100 Guilds throughout the UK.
Our Groups and Online Programme
We have a variety of craft groups meeting regularly at our dedicated workshops in Steeple Ashton, including Spinning, Weaving, Patchwork, Felting, Sewing and other Handicrafts. Beginner and follow on workshops are available throughout the year. Our online programme includes workshops, talks and challenges.
Wiltshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers & Dyers
Items created by our members from all our groups can be included in our Sales held in Steeple Ashton during the Summer and at Christmas. Members can also advertise their creations in our new online shop.
All our Members have access to our bank of Newsletters which contain many interesting and informative articles written by members of the Guild. Our June 2020 Newsletter is available here for public view.
The mission of the Guild is to preserve skills associated with our local heritage of rearing sheep and also to promote those skills and pass them on to the next generation. We do this by sharing our combined knowledge and skills, enhancing our individual areas of expertise by learning new things, and by offering regular courses in Spinning, Weaving and Dyeing.
