Visit to the Grampian Guild

I have recently returned from a trip "up north" to see the folks. I could not resist a wee trip out to see the Grampian Guild's exhibition. Well worth it too! I was made very welcome by fellow yarnaholics Dora Osbourne and Pam Wheatley, and enjoyed a coffee and a chin wag.

Their banner was beautifully felted and their items on display were stunning. Enjoy! They even had a great wheel which had been handcrafted by a local chap.
Pam (on the left)is coming down to Pontardawe (incredible coincidence!!) in November and I have invited her to join the class if she can to meet the gang.

Taster sessions!

Drop in for a chat and find out how to join!!

On the 11th and 25th September between noon and 8pm, at The Cross Commuity Centre, Pontardawe, where members of the Tawe Guild will welcome you to our home in basement studio.

Spinning need not be expensive! A simple spindle can be for had for little money and you can try different types when you visit.

Come and talk to us if you are thinking of buying a wheel or a loom or want to learn to spin or weave with your own equipment.

Our Guild members have between them many years of experience to draw on, in fact, the Tawe Guild has been running for more than 25 years and would love to share their knowledge.

The Guild offers well attended day-time and evening classes, monthly specialist courses, we even ‘spin in public’ to spread the word. We have lots of opportunities to exhibit or to sell our work, to meet new and interesting people and to enjoy these traditional crafts, keeping them alive for future generations.

Come and see what it’s all about.
