Weavers in this group have looms with four shafts or more. We meet to study and weave following a different structure every two months. Group members are given a basic overview of the structure and do their own research and project planning. They may use their own books, online resources and/or books and magazines from the Guild library.
We share our previous knowledge and our research within the group and are free to weave whatever projects take our fancy. Some members weave samples, others make decorative textiles, still others weave functional cloth. The group is designed to give members all the flexibility they need, including coming to meetings to chat without weaving along.
This group is ideal for weavers who want a little structure to keep weaving and learning outside the more formal setting of a course.
The group is suitable for:
• weavers who have completed introductory or certificate courses
• Melbourne-based and affiliate Guild members who are unable to regularly travel to the Guild rooms
• people who want to keep making and expanding their skills in a relaxed and supportive environment
