STUDY GROUP 2019 – 2020
It took very little time for Study Group to find a topic for 2019-2020 to weave and learn when we met at Jessie’s house in May. We enthusiastically decided on “Weave a Pictorial! “ And what a variety of structures or methods we discussed.
Here are some of the ideas for how to weave a pictorial.
Split Shed Biederwand
We offer very few restrictions, just weave something, in your choice of structures that has a picture quality to it. A few years ago, we took a survey of the people who came to our show at the Beachwood Library and the favorite piece was Nancy’s tapestry—a pictorial. So, this exercise may produce some new energy to our shows this year.
Our first Study Group gathering will be at Patty’s house, 10 am, October 3, 2019. Please come prepared to sign up for hosting or presenting for the year. Please check the address on our Guild roster.
Have fun and weave on!
