Our Guild exists to provide a sociable environment for members to practise their skills, learn new skills and share skills with each other and anyone interested in learning. 

Our next meeting is on 13th January
SWD Jan 18

We regularly have informal or formal workshops and demonstrate skills in public e.g.  craft fairs, farmers markets, visit schools etc.

Meetings are generally on the second Saturday of each month from 10.00 to 15.30 hrs (workshops sometimes run to 16.00 hrs) at St. Theresa’s Church Hall, Glasgow St. Dumfries DG2 9DE.

A Guild Meeting generally follows this format:

  • 10.00-10.30 – members arrive, greet and chat
  • 10.30-11.00 – Guild business is discussed
  • 11.00-12.30 – workshops or skill sharing
  • 12.30-13.00 – lunch
  • 13.00-15.30 – workshops or skill sharing

Anyone not participating in workshops tends to bring their own spinning, weaving, knitting projects, etc. to work at whilst catching up with news and events.

Check out our programme – you are welcome to visit us for a meeting or two, to see what we do, have a chat with members.  

Visitors pay £4 (which includes refreshments), before joining the Guild.  Introduce yourself to one of the Committee members who will show you the library, tell you about borrowing equipment and help make you feel welcome.
