Creative Fibre

Creative Fibre@Keirunga  explores all aspects of fibre craft. We spin, weave, knit, crochet, felt and dye.


 

Welcome to Creative Fibre.  

We welcome new members and would love to host you for a session so that you will be able to experience our lovely craft mornings.  Please do contact us (details below)

Some tuition is available on club days and in occasional special workshops.
 
Our craft work is sometimes available for sale and some members are prepared to spin, knit or do other craft work on commission.
 
We have wheels and looms for hire to members at very reasonable rates and sometimes have second-hand wheels and looms available for sale. We are also able to help members with access to and selection of fibre. There is a large 8-shaft loom available for use at the club.
 
The emphasis in our group is on comradeship and passing on skills. Our group belongs to Creative Fibre Hawke’s Bay and is affiliated with Creative Fibre NZ
 
Our Facebook page Creative Fibre at Keirunga shows work done by members.
