About Us

The New Forest Weavers, Spinners and Dyers guild was founded in 1980 and presently has approx 50 members. We are a diverse group of weavers, spinners and dyers, beginners to experts, young and old, who all share a love of textiles and desire to learn. The guild is a registered charity.

Our meetings take place between 10am and 4pm on the second Saturday of the month except during August. We meet at Greyfriars Community Centre in Ringwood.  Existing membership is renewed in September for 1 year and we are affiliated to The Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers

Guild meetings are free to members.  We have a monthly newsletter which goes out to members in the week before the meeting to pass on all the news and any information members may need for the meeting. 

Visitors are always welcome to our monthly meetings, come along and see what it’s all about. A small fee for non-members is charged at £4.
