Courses by experts, taught locally at the Arts Center or online from the comfort of your home

Explore Fiber Arts Horizons

Several times a year, WGGB brings widely recognized weaving and spinning instructors to the guild to conduct workshops.  These workshops generally are 2-3 days in length, but are often shorter, and allow guild members to focus on a particular weaving structure or technique.  Workshops usually are held at the Howard County Arts Center, but can also be taught virtually.  Students supply their own equipment.

Non-members may be allowed to attend if space permits.  For SOLD OUT classes, please send an email to to be put on a waiting list.
