Get Weaving at Whitchurch Silk Mill!

Many Hands weaving a network of community

Whitchurch Silk Mill is looking for people who have some spare time to help improve the experience of every visitor and give them a great memory to treasure.

After the “Have your say” vote in February, the Friends of Whitchurch Silk Mill were awarded £1,000 to build a network of volunteers so hold on to your hats because the recruitment drive has started! Marion Brinton, Chair of the Friends of Whitchurch Silk Mill says, “Visitors often appreciate talking to real people to learn more about what they are seeing , helping them to understand the Mill and all that goes on there. The Friends are now looking for cheerful, friendly people to help with many aspects of Mill life.”

 

Each of these pictures needs YOU !!

and there’s even a chance to learn the art of crafting the silk thread to a finished product  - yes, operating one of those wonderful old looms as a Weaving Interpreter working under the guidance of our Weaver, using the handloom and explaining the weaving process to visitors. 

 

Or are you Handy with a spanner? You could help to keep the mill in good working condition by coming on Maintenance Monday – which includes taking care of our machinery .

 

These roles will suit people who want to help keep alive a part of our industrial heritage, housed in a beautiful building in an idyllic setting. They will provide an interest for people who are interested in giving something back to society or who are looking to broaden their cv for a change of career direction. Full training will be given.
