West Carleton Fibre Guild
The West Carleton Fibre Guild (WCFG) began in the mid-1980’s with a small group of weavers and spinners. The guild has since expanded to nearly 40 fibre enthusiasts from West Carleton, Kanata, Ottawa and beyond.
What we do
The guild meets once a month and has regular study groups for those looking to further improve their fibre arts skills. Monthly guild meetings usually include a presentation and/or hands-on workshop activity, as well as show-and-tell, and help with any fibre –arts issues. Guild members have many areas of expertise, including:
Wet and Dry Felting
And much, much more!
Regular day-time monthly meetings with presentations and activities
Access to all-day guild workshops with well-known fibre artists
Monthly notification of regional fibre arts activities
Yearly fibre arts challenges
Two daytime potluck meetings
Formal study groups and informal help and instructions
Access to a fibre-related library
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Dunrobin Community Centre unless otherwise specified.
