Inspiration for the Spring 2022 competition

Pardon the dreadful pun, but please take part in our latest members’ competition.

Your project must focus on weaving, spinning or dyeing (or any combination thereof). Beyond that it’s up to your imagination. Sign up £5 at the February meeting. Judging will take place at the March guild meeting, because the April 2022 meeting falls on Easter Sunday so is cancelled.

Dyeing – Aug- Oct 2019

For this our inspiration was an image of a selection of spices in an Indian market. This attracted entries using both natural and acid dyes. More information and images here!

Weaving – May – July 2019

This competition used an image of Brighton beach as inspiration and attracted a wide variety of imaginative entries – More information and pictures here

Spinning – Jan – April 2019

Our first competition challenge was related to spinning – on a spring theme. Judging will take place on May 21 – later than anticipated due to Easter break. More information here.
