CELEBRATING LEARNING AT THE WEAVERS GUILD OF MINNESOTA
If you want to learn the arts of weaving or spinning, where can you go? For more than 80 years, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has been the destination for weaving and spinning education in the Twin Cities. WGM is currently the largest weaving and spinning guild in the US, with more than 600 members. We offer classes, member activities such as exhibitions and study groups, and talks and workshops with nationally-recognized experts.
The support of member education began just weeks after the guild was formed in 1940. It held a two week “institute” taught by Mary Meigs Atwater, one of the leading American weavers of the day. An interest in sharing knowledge between members led to the beginnings of a guild instruction program, with classes taught by guild members and invited experts. Until the guild found a more permanent location in 1955, classes were taught in members’ homes. The Weavers Guild also acquired looms, other equipment, and library books for member use.
