The Weavers' Guild of Boston offers numerous educational opportunities which cover all levels of weaving from never-unwound-a-skein through independent study to earn a Master Weaver Plus rating. Workshops are usually pre-registered and open to both guild members and non-members (space permitting.) Entering a morning workshop on the day of the workshop is possible if there is space available and no advance preparation needed.
Morning workshops are short studies covering specific
topics, e.g., a particular weave, or technique. These workshops are in the mornings of the Wednesday
meetings and may be a single 2-hour session or multiple sessions spanning several meetings.
they request a little advance preparation or give homework.
Each year the guild offers one or two multi-day, more
intensive “special workshops” taught by an acknowledged
expert in his/her field. A typical special workshop lasts
three full days, and usually involves weaving at the
workshop. Weaving experience is normally required.
WGB has two listservs through YahooGroups! to help members, near and far, get acquainted and stay in touch with one another. Members_WGB is the general interest group. It's a good place to find out about guild and area events or ask a weaving question and get help quickly.
