The Wellington Creative Fibre Area extends from Levin across to Masterton and south to Cook Straight – 17 groups meet regularly, sharing and learning new skills. Teaching workshops are offered over a wide range of the textile disciplines ranging from rank beginners to the more experienced. These include spinning, knitting, felting, weaving, textile jewellery, tapestry weaving, crochet and textile art from. Often a mixture of techniques is used in one piece of work. The small groups exhibit on a regular basis and the whole area has a major exhibition biennially. Please feel free to contact the Area Delegate for any further information.
We meet on Tuesdays 10.00am – 2.00pm for general activities, spinning, knitting, dyeing (sometimes) and general chit chat, in our own club rooms situated just outside of Foxton township. Once a month, on the third Thursday, we try to have a weaving day where we work on our own projects or maybe a club project. We also have a small felting group that meets on Wednesdays at 10.00am.
Meets: Foxton Town & Country Spinners & Weavers, 204 Foxton-Shannon Road
