Meetings & Events

Please check here for the current plan to continue the Guild’s work during the coronavirus. No face to face meetings are happening.

Meetings usually run on the second sunday of the month from 10:30 until 4 but feel free to pop in and stay for as long as you want. Members £3, visitors £5.

Tea, coffee and cake are provided but bring a packed lunch. We have plenty of room for spinning wheels and looms – if you need a hand to bring them in from your car, please ask. The Guild has access to a couple of spare wheels so if you’d like to have a go at spinning please get in touch with the secretary to arrange for one to be available secretary.highpeakwsd@gmail.com
