We are a community-based textile group in East Brighton.
Members of the group meet every Friday at Whitehawk Library, 12-3pm.
This meeting is composed of spinners, knitters, and other textile crafts and anyone is welcome to bring a portable, (but non-messy please) textile project to work at for a few hours in the company of others. Not everyone comes every week, but occasionally members will share skills in an informal workshop.
We also go out to events to demonstrate and share skills with the general public. If you run or are planning a community event in the wider area around Brighton and Hove and would like spinning and related textile crafts to be part of your event, please contact us.
Because we are an informal group, it is always best to email via the ‘contact’ page to check that someone will be there before coming to a Whitehawk library meeting for the first time.
Update for 2023
Following a break due to COVID lockdowns, the group is now back to regular Friday weekly meetings at the library.
Anyone with an interest in textiles is welcome.
