Programme

Our Guild has a number of opportunities for members to get together and share ideas and expertise.

  • Main Guild Meeting:each months' main meeting takes place at Charvil Village Hall, Charvil. RG10 9TR from 10:30 am - 4:30 pm. They vary in focus or theme and full details are shown below. The Guild Library, Trading Table and Notice Board are all available at these meetings which often have expert speakers providing presentations with accompanying slides or actual textile examples.
  • The Spinning Group:meets every Wednesday fortnight from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in Charvil Village Hall, Charvil. RG10 9TR This is an excellent way to learn how to spin as the meetings are very informal and there is plenty of opportunity for one-to-one help and guidance.
  • The Weaving Group: meets every Thursday fortnight from 10:15 am - 1:15 pm for "practical" weaving meetings in Charvil Village Hall, Charvil. RG10 9TR There will be "discussion" meetings also.
