Study Groups provide an excellent way for members to become acquainted and share information. Some groups exchange swatches while in others members send in original articles, computer drafts and other short bits of information for their newsletters. There are groups who meet face to face but most communicate by mail and e-mail.
The Study Groups do have a chance to get together every other year at the Complex Weavers Seminars. What fun it is to finally meet your weaving pen pals in person!
Whether you are drawn to old weaving manuscripts, computer tools and drafting, math and weaving, medieval fabric and clothing, specific weave structures, bands and braids, drawloom weaving, or weaving with fine threads, we have a group for you.
To learn more about a listed study group, please contact the Coordinators with your questions. If there is not a group that deals with your interests, the Study Group Chair can work with you to start a new one. You are also welcome to borrow Study Group Notebooks through the Complex Weavers Library for your research and inspiration. Membership in Complex Weavers and a desire to learn and share are the only prerequisites.
When you join a study group your contributions will be kept in the library and will be available only to Complex Weavers members and only for their own private use. Copyrights will be retained by the author. Copyright law prohibits others from using the materials in teaching, weaving for sale, and publication without the express permission of the author.
