SPINNING AND KNITTING DROP IN
Come to our Resource Centre to socialize, work on your own projects, and chat with like-minded craftspeople and artists. Feel free to join us – it’s totally free! Occasionally we have themes, such as a regular Spinning Clinic. There’s also a great little cafe on the ground floor.
When: Tuesdays, 10 am to lunchtime
Where: Room 205, 915 Dupont Street, Toronto. (Upstairs. Sorry – no elevator.)
IN THE COMMUNITY
The Guild generally participates in the following events each year where we demonstrate fibre processing, spinning and weaving to the public. We look forward to resuming these events when restrictions on social gatherings are lifted.
See the Guild in action on the second weekend in September at the Riverdale Farm Fall Festival, and at the Cabbagetown Festival too!
Riverdale Farm is a great place to spend Family Day, with lots of fun activities taking place, including weaving and spinning that the whole family can enjoy.
Riverdale Farm opens its doors with the farm’s popular spring festival where Guild members use the fleece shorn from the farm sheep to demonstrate the old skills needed to make yarn, dye it and weave it into cloth. Come and see sheep shearing, basic wool preparation, spinning and weaving in action!
