CHH SWATCH SWAP: We invite you to join us as we learn about Anni Albers and the Bauhaus School of Design. Anni is a weaving icon who raised the level of textiles to an art form. Our goal is to find inspiration in her work that will lead us to produce a sample that challenges us to explore, experiment, and simply try something new.
Swatch Swap is about sharing our love of weaving while exploring topics that change yearly. Our library volumes demonstrate the many we have studied thus far. Presentation date TBA, at Guild House.
FELT STUDY GROUP: This group is dedicated to studying felt making and related topics. Meetings are held quarterly on a Sunday afternoon at the Guild House. (Please check the Guild House calendar for specific dates.) We share techniques and ideas to deepen our knowledge of felt making.
