Weaving Teachers

WGB connects people seeking weaving instruction with guild members who teach. This list is organized by state (or country), then town. You may assume that all teachers take adults, that weaving equipment will be provided in the studio as needed, and appointment/sign-up is required beforehand.  Please contact the teacher directly as these are not guild-sponsored opportunities.
