For more information, please call The Westfield Weavers Guild has been in continuous existence since 1947 and draws its members from counties ranging from Union, Essex, Middlesex, Hunterdon, Somerset, and even neighboring Pennsylvania and New York. Guild members works have been shown at Galleries and Fashion Shows in New Jersey and elsewhere in the U.S. The Guild meets monthly to study the art of weaving and related fiber arts.
The most recent area of study this October was a workshop given by Melanie Spock, a member of the New Jersey Mycological Association. Guild members learned about different wild mushrooms from the surrounding area and learned how to extract dyes from them. They produced a myriad of colors in the dyed skeins of wool. It was revelatory to see lilac, red, and deep gold emerge from the mushroom dye pots! Westfield Weavers Guild at (908) 397-8130 or visit our website at http://www.westfieldweavers.org
