Isle of Wight Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers

We are affiliated to the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers -

The Isle of Wight Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers meet monthly to share ideas, learn new skills and spin, weave and knit our handspun yarns among likeminded friends. We have experts in many different fibre crafts and love helping each other. It doesn't matter how experienced or inexperienced you are there is always something for you including help, tuition and guidance in all our disciplines.

During the winter months we meet at Rookley Community Hall, Highwood Lane Rookley, Isle of Wight, PO38 3NN.  In May, June and July we meet at the Wilberforce Hall, Brighstone.  There is no meeting in August.

Meetings start at 10.00 and finish at 4pm, they begin with a formal meeting followed by coffee, then there's either a workshop and/or a general work day where we spin, weave or work within our disciplines.  Workshops are optional, sometimes it's just nice to have a day of working on your favourite craft.  Bring your own lunch if you intend to stay for the day.  Tea and coffee is available.  Parking is available nearby at both venues.

During May, June and July there are lots of additional days demonstrating at shows and events around the Island.

Please see our 2019 Programme below for our meeting details
