Study leader, Helen Lemmer. Meets fourth Monday of the month at 7pm at members' homes.
One of the great benefits for membership in the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo is the chance to grow as a fiber artist. In addition to having workshops and lectures by artists outside our membership, we learn from each other in the form of monthly get-togethers led by members. At the last Guild meeting of the year in May, each study group sets up displays to share what they have done during the year. Here is some information about ongoing study groups and their leaders. If you have questions or desire more information, please contact the Education Chair.
