At the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, we believe weaving, spinning, and dyeing are fundamental to the human experience.
WGM programs include visiting artist workshops with nationally-recognized instructors, public talks and exhibitions, and year-round classes designed for learners of all skill levels and abilities. WGM’s off-site programs partner with festivals and other arts, sustainability and social service organizations throughout the Twin Cities metro area. On-site, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota maintains dedicated classroom space and a wide range of tools, equipment, and reference resources, as well as a shop selling specialty equipment, books, and yarns.
Member events include meetings and lectures, self-study interest groups, exhibition opportunities and the annual artisan sale. Membership is open to everyone. Join us!
Founded in 1940 by twenty-six enthusiasts, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM) has grown from an all-volunteer organization to one that offers classes and events year round at its current location in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. We are the largest weavers guild in the US, serving nearly 600 members.
