A Special gift to you as a member of the New Orleans Weavers Guild
Our recent newsletter contained information about a Basket Weaving Workshop for Weavers Guild members to be held April 8th and 9th. This workshop is a special gift to our membership. Your only expenses to attend, beside your lunch, is the small fee to cover the materials you will use to create your own special woven creation. Register for the basket of your choice and come join in the fun!
ANNA ROSE BARRY, M.F.A. Anna Berry is a very popular basketry instructor from Texas. She conducts classes at her studio, WHITE ROCK WEAVING CENTER most weekends or at conferences. At our request, she has made special arraignments to come to New Orleans. Pictures of the baskets, workshop details and registration form can be found on the website, www.nowg.org
A bit of background on this workshop - It was the decision of the 2015-16 NOWG Executive Board that a Guild sponsored weaving workshop was long overdue to our loyal members. In addition, our membership was expanding to include new members just starting on their weaving journey. It was decided that the best “gift” weaving workshop was one where everyone would learn new skills, no matter their current expertise. Basketry was chosen. It took time to search for the best instructor and to work into her teaching schedule so that is why what started in one administration is occurring under our new Executive Board’s direction.
We hope you enjoy the workshop and your newest woven creation. The workshop will be held at 1038 Monroe Street, Gretna, La (504 810-4952). Ample street parking is available in this quiet neighborhood across the river.
Choices are either a market basket on Saturday
or a melon basket on Sunday.
