Weavers Guild of MN: Artist Development Series

For the first time, and with the support of the Smith Family Foundation, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota is offering a series of classes, workshops, panel discussions, and facilitated group discussions by and for our artists. Focus on business skills, technology, portfolio development, and more, by taking all the sessions or choosing the ones that are most applicable to you. You’ll also meet and network with other weaving, spinning, and dyeing artists who – just like you – are working to thrive through their art!

See the full listing of offerings at the Weaver’s Guild site.


There are two options for registration.

Sign up for individual sessions

Individual sessions are $15 for classes/workshops and $5 for panel discussions. Sign up for the sessions that best meet your schedule and needs.

Sign up for the whole Series

If you want to take all the sessions, you can sign up with one easy step by registering for the whole series! If you are a member of the Weavers Guild, you get a $10 off the regular price of the Series when you choose this option.
