In response to Covid 19 - our workshops have been cancelled
We will be rescheduling workshops when we have a safe process to do so. 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.
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
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 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 $50 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, felting and ceinture fleche.
