Happy 50th, HGB!
The Handweavers Guild of Boulder includes over 350 members with interests in all fiber media: weaving, knitting, felting, spinning, beadwork, quilting, dyeing, basketry, paper, crochet, and surface design. We're an enthusiastic mix of hobbyists, artisans, and professional artists. We're celebrating our 50th anniversary this year. We have had several wonderful and fun events, but you still have some time to see these:
The Art of Fiber, a juried exhibit at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, opened December 5, 2014 and runs through January 16, 2015. The exhibit includes both a historical time line showing the evolution of the guild and an invitational segment featuring renowned guild artists.
Luminescence, an illuminated handwoven and interactive art installation at the entryway to the Dairy, is up and lighted at night, and it also looks beautiful during the day. Here's a video about Luminescence from Boulder channel 8.
The February 2015 issue of The Beat is available. The Day guild meeting is Monday, 2/8, the second Monday of the month. The Evening guild meeting is Tuesday, 2/9. A corrected Beat is pending.
The next Sale and Show will be November 4-8, 2015, at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. Update your calendar!
