Summer Series 2021

The 2021 Summer Series offers Guild members an opportunity to view the Morning Workshop recordings from the 2020-2021 season.  Each video will be available to registered attendees for 7 days, during which time you can watch as often as you wish with full video control such as pause, back up, and fast forward. Handouts for each workshop will be available for download on the website video page. 

The Weavers’ Guild of Boston Study Groups 

As a new benefit to membership and a continuation of our educational charter, the Guild is creating a Study Group program.  The Study Group program will be overseen by a Study Group Coordinator, and each Study Group will be independently organized by a Study Group Manager.  Each Study Group will have a section on the website for their private use; to share images or ideas, organize meetings, set up guidelines and topics, etc.

In a Study Group, everyone is a student and everyone is a teacher.  A Study Group is not a class, but is a gathering to share ideas and learning experiences.  We hope our members will want to join in.

New Study Groups:

Coverlets 

Double Weave 

Exploring Woven Fabrics by Janet Phillips 

Journeyman Ratings

New and Occasional Weavers

Wednesday Morning Workshops 

Morning workshops meet via Zoom from 10:00am until noon on meeting days. They provide an opportunity to broaden one's understanding of weaving and related areas. 

Library

Due to COVID-19 the library at the Church is currently closed and will remain closed as long as the Guild is meeting virtually. If there is a specific book you would like, please contact the Librarian (joanne@bookus-Boulet.com) to discuss arrangements for borrowing.

Weaving Teachers

WGB connects people seeking weaving instruction with guild members who teach. 

Ratings Program

The Guild offers a weaving ratings program for full members.  Four levels may be achieved by a weaver:  Apprentice, Journeyman, Master, and Master Plus.  The program is a valuable study guide which offers critical analysis of your work as you progress and bestows recognition on those who meet the standards.
