Textiles & Tea

by | Mar 25, 2021


The Handweavers Guild of America, Inc.’s (HGA) exciting new program for 2021, Textiles & Tea, takes place every Tuesday at 4 PM (EST). We’ve invited some of the most respected fiber artists in the field today to join us for an hour long conversation where we will discuss their artwork and their creative journey. Make a cup of your favorite tea and join us as we talk about fiber, creativity, inspiration, process and so much more.
