Winchester Embroiderers' Guild welcomes contemporary and traditional textile artists, embroiderers and craft enthusiasts

Our workshops are for members of Winchester Embroiderers' Guild and normally book up quickly. Occasionally places may be offered to members of other branches or to visitors if there are spaces available. If you are not a Winchester branch member but would like to attend a workshop please contact the programme co-ordinator.

Workshop times are 10am-4pm and are at the Dovetail Centre, Chandler's Ford, Winchester unless otherwise stated. Tea/coffee and biscuits are provided but you will need to bring a packed lunch.

All workshops must be booked and paid for in advance.

This is our list of workshops for 2017. Winchester Embroiderers' Guild members who have registered with the website and are logged in to the site will be able to view the workshop requirements list by clicking on the link in the  "req'ts" column.
