The 37 members of Whonnock Weavers and Spinners come from the Fraser Valley / Lower Mainland area of B.C.
The purpose of the Whonnock Weavers and Spinners is to encourage active interest in the fibre arts, both of it’s members and the community.
We welcome anyone, from beginner to advanced, with interests in the fibre arts. We have a great diversity of skill levels and interests as well as willingness to share information and techniques. We meet every second and fourth Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. at Whonnock Lake Centre, September to June. Annual membership fees of $25.
Whonnock Weavers and Spinners Guild was formed in 1974 by a group of people interested in keeping alive the age-old crafts of weaving and spinning and who wished to share their experiences with others. Demonstrations, visual presentations, slideshows, workshops, sales and community displays are included in our activities.
An annual exhibition and sale is held at Whonnock Lake Centre, displaying handcrafted items made by guild members. All funds generated by the sale help subsidize guild workshops and projects throughout the year. We do demonstrations and participate in many community events in Maple Ridge.
