During lockdown the Guild set to work to keep members meeting up and keeping busy learning new crafts and skills.
An online programme was set up organised by an "Online Sub Committee". Once a month members could participate in the sessions on Zoom.
The sessions are listed below with a link to a dedicated page where you will find more details, notes, instructions videos and images of member's creations related to the sessions.
If you have any images to add please forward to firstname.lastname@example.org
A very big thank you to the Online Sub Committee for their hard work during this time.
