London Guild - talk & hand dyeing workshop

We had a fabulous time with the London Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers over the weekend of 12th & 13th April.

On Saturday Debbie gave a talk to all the Guild members on Dyes Past And Present while Pete looked after our travelling shop. The Guild have a lovely space in which to meet at St Stephen’s House and it was great to see so many members who had come to learn more about the history of dyes and dyeing.  

On Sunday we relocated to Spitalfields City Farm which is a hidden oasis in the middle of urban London. It was a gloriously sunny day and far too nice to be inside so we were very pleased to see the marquee the workshop was to be held in. The staff at the farm were excellent and ensured everything went smoothly.

At times the visiting public found the workshop as interesting as the animals and plants they had come to see, especially when students with arms full of brightly coloured skeins were walking to the sinks to rinse out their yarn.

We would like to thank the Guild for inviting us down for the weekend. We would also like to say a massive thank you to Penny for making us feel so welcome in her home and making our stay so special.
