Active, local, wool based craft group. Activities include - spinning, weaving, felting, knitting and dyeing (natural and commercial). We visit and exchange ideas with other groups.
We are affiliated with the Handweavers and Spinners Guild of Victoria, receiving their monthly newsletter, Treadles.
The group participates in displays, exhibitions and local events.
We meet fortnightly, in the rear of the Newstead Community Centre between 10am and 3pm.
On several meeting days each year we run Workshops focussing on a particular craft. Our next workshop will be:
Tuesday September 29: Wool Preparation and Spinning Techniques, led by Kristen Duckworth. This workshop will be good for spinners of all levels, and especially for beginners. However, those who are experienced in working with wool may still pick up new ideas.
