The Burr House Spinners and Weavers Guild is a vibrant collection of fibre art enthusiasts, artisans, and artists. The Guild has been active in the Richmond Hill, Ontario community since 1982.
Guild members’ skills range from novice to experienced in a wide variety of fibre arts, including spinning, weaving, knitting, quilting, dyeing, felting, basketry and tapestry.
So that our members can learn, create, and share knowledge in the fibre arts, our supportive environment includes:
… a fully equipped weaving studio with floor looms and work stations accessible every day to members to create in
… an extensive equipment and reference lending library that includes books, magazines and other publications about weaving and spinning as well as other fiber arts, textile history and methods from around the world and contemporary approach.
… demonstrations, presentations and workshops by guild members and/or guest speakers… monthly Zoom meetings, weekly online interest group get togethers
… weekly drop ins for members to work on personal art projects
… community outreach demonstrations and collaboration with other local organizations to support the arts
… member sales opportunities
Consider joining! Visitors and new members are always welcome.
