Interpreting Change: Weavers’ Guild of Boston – 1922 – 2022 commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Weavers’ Guild of Boston (WGB), the oldest weavers’ guild in the United States. It is also one of the largest, with over 300 members worldwide striving to elevate handweaving through education, programming, and creative production. These members are both tradition keepers and trailblazers, upholding the foundations of the practice while establishing new directions for the field through their contributions to the Guild.
In addition to commemorating WGB’s century of achievement, Interpreting Change underscores the importance of guilds to the ongoing vibrancy of contemporary craft. Guilds, such as the Weavers’ Guild of Boston, advance their areas of interest by bringing people together to share knowledge, encourage innovation, and foster professional advancement of their members. They keep important traditions and skills alive through public education and access. They support members’ work production and promote weaving’s ongoing creative evolution.
Interpreting Change is a juried exhibition, featuring thirty-two works by current WGB members. The exquisite textiles highlight developments in material, artistic taste, design, and the nature of process- oriented craft. The pieces contain historical and social content and comment on domesticity, politics, women's rights, and other changing realities over the past century. By witnessing these resonant expressions, viewers will experience textural and timely artworks that captivate the senses, engage the mind, and generate excitement for what lies ahead for the Weavers’ Guild of Boston.
The catalog provides detailed information about the individual works created by our members, in full color, with artists' statements.
