WHO WE ARE
Madison Hand-weavers is a committee of active members of the Madison Weavers Guild. For over 35 years, members of the guild have organized and participated in art fairs as joint ventures with other area artist guilds until the venues were no longer available. In 2014, Madison Hand-weavers moved the Fine Art & Craft Sale to Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, WI in both Spring and Fall. Our focus is not just on weaving, but on the various media artists use to create art, both functional and decorative. Several Madison Weavers Guild members participate in the event as well as artists from other area guilds.
In addition to the Fine Art & Craft Sale, the committee also assists with the Madison Weavers Guild Booth at Art Fair on the Square, held on the Capitol Square in Madison each year in July. Guild members participate with their woven items for sale as well as outreach to attract new weavers and interested members to the guild.
The Weavers Guild was established in 1949 in Madison, WI. The guild has continued to help people learn about the art of weaving and discuss the challenges and joys of weaving and related fiber art. All experience and interest levels are welcome! Please visit the Madison Weavers Guild website for information regarding events, meetings, and becoming a member at MadisonWeaversGuild.com.
