The Atlantic Spinners and Handweavers (ASH) was established by a group of local weavers in 1970 and provides the opportunity for weavers, spinners and dyers living in the Halifax area and beyond, to meet in a social atmosphere, to exchange information, learn new techniques and methods and share their interests.
We meet on the second Thursday of each month, September through June at 7:15 p.m. at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History, Summer Street, lower level entrance. Meeting programs include a variety of interesting lectures, slide presentations, demonstrations, and guest speakers. Coffee, tea and conversation close every meeting.
We also provide the opportunity to get more in-depth with a topic through our Hands On meetings at Scott Manor House on the fourth Saturday of September through November and January through May.
