With the ease of restrictions coming into effect on the 1st June, we have been able to resume all spinning day activities.
We are implementing all required health practices and encouraging physical distancing. There is a numerical limit at all venues, but there are no concerns at this stage.
- We will provide hand sanitiser and ask that everyone uses it on entering or uses their own.
- The tables and chairs will be sprayed with an antiseptic solution.
- We will provide tea, coffee and milk as usual but please bring your own cup and morning tea.
Newcastle Spinners and Weavers members are encouraged to join the Official Members page on Facebook to share your crafting projects.
The Guild nurtures the fibre crafts of spinning and weaving, and encourage other crafts such as felting, dyeing, knitting, crocheting where fibres can be used.
Meetings include demonstrations and hands on activities, as well as problem solving in the many facets of the use of fibres. (e.g. reading patterns)
Workshops are arranged on a regular basis and have included: basket weaving, weaving, spinning silk, felting and many more. Major workshops are conducted by experienced fibre artists on a fee paying basis. These are available to members, and to non members who may also be required to pay a membership fee to participate. (See further details under “event information”)
Mini workshops/demos are often held during meetings, usually free or may involve a small fee to cover consumables supplied by the demonstrator. (See further details under “Event Information”)
