On Tuesday, May 10th, The CHG Tapestry Study Group met in person for the first time since the pandemic began. The Group travelled to the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA) Center in Chamblee, GA to view the Square Foot Fiber Art Pin Up Show 2022 and to share recent tapestry projects in person.
Our May meeting was held in our newly renovated Room 1. It has been more than 2 years since we came together in one place. So great to see everyone. We are working on ways to learn from our online experiences and still make it possible for us to engage in a proper show-and-tell with the weaver's handshake. Phase 1 of the room is just about complete. Phase 2 will include more extensive digital presentation and hybrid experience equipment. Stay tuned and see you at our June meeting.
CHG Member, Terri Bryson is featured in an international online tapestry exhibit. The "New Directions" exhibit is an invitation-only, online exhibit organized by Lindsey Marshall and Jane Freer-Wyld in the UK. The tapestries in the exhibit are small format (10" x 10" or less). See the complete exhibit here. Congratulations Terri!
Participants from Indiana, New York, Missouri, Georgia and Germany gathered on Zoom to work with Karen Donde from Asheville, NC to learn about Turned Beiderwand on 18-19th September 2021. Workshop participants learned that Turned Beiderwand is a type of double weave structure in which some “warp ends work as separate layers, others as tie-down ends” (Donde, 2017). Karen shared numerous images of her beautiful work using Turned Beiderwand, as well as historical examples.
a message from our president
Welcome to Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild, a vibrant organization dedicated to fostering and supporting weaving and other fiber related arts. We offer meetings, programs, exhibits, workshops, classes, and demonstrations at community events.
After over two years of virtual meetings due to the pandemic we are thrilled to finally be resuming in-person meetings! Much has changed over the past two years, including a major renovation to room 1, the loom room where most of our classes are held. The next step of our planned changes will be to install technology to allow for virtual as well as in-person attendance at meetings and workshops. Stay tuned for more information.
Our meetings are held each month except for July, August and December and visitors are always welcome to attend. Check our web calendar for meeting information.
