Wednesday Morning Workshops
This Fall we offer two or three workshops in September, October and November. We will meet via Zoom from 10:00am until noon.
In the Spring, we offer two live in-person workshops as well as one Zoom workshop in March and April. Live in-person workshops are open to the public.
We hope the workshops will provide an opportunity to broaden one's understanding of weaving and related areas.
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.

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.
