Workshops

Our workshop schedule is limited for now.

If you are wondering if there is a workshop for you, take a look at some photos from our past year and check back often for updates.  Email us (kinghws@gmail.com)  indicating an area of  interest.

Our workshops are focused for members for now.

Workshop Registration

Please make your cheque payable to "KHWS" and date one month before the workshop. Write a separate cheque for each workshop. Your place in the workshop is secured by your payment, except that members are given priority up to 2 months before the workshop. Your cheque will not be cashed unless there is a place available in the
workshop. Drop off your cheque with your details at a monthly meeting, Open Studio days (details on our home page), or post to:

Kingston Handloom Weavers and Spinners
Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning
205 - 370 King Street West
Kingston, ON
K7L 2X4

If you are not yet a Guild member contact us Here for more details.

No refunds will be issued for cancellations less than 4 weeks before the workshop unless a replacement participant can be found (6 weeks for visiting instructors). If a workshop is cancelled by KHWS (e.g. if there are insufficient registrations), then a full refund will be given.

Materials  and printing fees are payable to the instructor. Supplies/equipment lists will be distributed closer to the workshop.

Studio looms or spinning wheels are available to reserve (included in Introductory Workshops). Work must be removed from looms within 2 weeks of a workshop, after which a rental fee will be charged if the loom is not required for another workshop.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

In addition to scheduled workshops, we offer introductory classes whenever we have enough participants. If you and three friends want a particular workshop we can make arrangements.

You do not need to be a member to register for a workshop, but members benefit from reduced workshop fees. Membership is $60 per year, and runs from June 1st to May 31st.

Guild members have access to our studio equipment and extensive library.

We have mentors in spinning, weaving, basketry,  and felting.
