100th Anniversary Celebration
In 2022 WGB will celebrate their centennial anniversary by having two exhibits at local museums.
The show at Fuller Craft Museum will be a juried exhibit featuring the work of many of our talented weavers. The exhibit will run from May 14, 2022 through October 16, 2022. There will be an opening reception at Fuller, date to be determined.
The second venue will be at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation (CRM) in Waltham where weaving in mills began. The Lowell Mills were modeled after the processes set up in the Waltham mills. Our exhibit will feature the Weavers' Guild of Boston's rich history, including our educational programs, our rating program, and the individual members of our guild who have had an influence on the weaving world. Members will have another place to exhibit work, including a beautiful display of cascading scarves from our annual challenges. This exhibit will run from April 2022 to December 2022. There will be opportunities for weaving demonstrations and a speaker series open to the public.
Details will be posted here and in the bulletin as they become available.
Please check this space frequently for ways to volunteer and participate.
