The Weavers’ Guild of Boston Study Groups
As a 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.
Current Study Groups:
Exploring Woven Fabrics by Janet Phillips
New and Occasional Weavers
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.
